NAME
     sa1 -- Generate a system activity daily data file.

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/lib/sa/sa1 [t n]

DESCRIPTION
     The sa1 command is a shell script used to invoke the system activity data collector, sadc.
     The binary sample data is collected at intervals t seconds apart, in a loop n times.  The
     binary sample data is written to the standard daily data file, /var/log/sa/sadd where the dd
     represents the current day of the month.

     sa1 is intended to be started by cron.

EXAMPLE CRON ENTRY
     # Starting at 8am collect system activity records
     # every 20 minutes for 12 hours
     # 20 minutes = 1200 seconds
     # 12 hours with 3 samples each hour = 36 loops

     0 8 * * 1-5 /usr/lib/sa/sa1 1200 36

     # After the 12 hour period,
     # collect a system activity report

     30 20 * * 1-5 /usr/lib/sa/sa2 -A
