       sag - system activity graph

       sag [-e time] [-f file] [-i sec] [-s time] [-T term]
	    [-x spec] [-y spec]

       The sag utility graphically displays the system activity data stored in a binary data file
       by a previous sar(1) run. Any of the sar data items may be plotted singly or  in  combina-
       tion,  as cross plots or versus time. Simple arithmetic combinations of data may be speci-
       fied. sag invokes sar and finds the desired data by string-matching the data column header
       (run  sar  to  see what is available). The sag utility requires a graphic terminal to draw
       the graph, and uses tplot(1) to produce its output. When running Solaris 2.x and  OpenWin-
       dows, perform the following steps:

	   1.	  Run an xterm as a Tektronics terminal: prompt# xterm -t

	   2.	  In  the  xterm  window,  run	sag specifying a tek terminal: prompt# sag -T tek

       The following options are supported and passed through to sar (see sar(1)):

       -e time	  Select data up to time. Default is 18:00.

       -f file	  Use file as the data source for sar. Default is the  current	daily  data  file

       -i sec	  Select data at intervals as close as possible to sec seconds.

       -s time	  Select data later than time in the form hh[:mm]. Default is 08:00.

       -T term	  Produce  output  suitable  for terminal term. See tplot(1) for known terminals.
		  Default for term is $TERM.

       -x spec	  x axis specification with spec in the form:

		  name[op name]...[lo hi]

		  name is either a string that will match a column header in the sar report, with
		  an  optional	device	name in square brackets, for example, r+w/s[dsk-1], or an
		  integer value. op is + - * or / surrounded by blank spaces. Up  to  five  names
		  may  be  specified. Parentheses are not recognized. Contrary to custom, + and -
		  have precedence over * and /. Evaluation is left to right. Thus,  A/A+B*100  is
		  evaluated  as (A/(A+B))*100, and A+B/C+D is (A+B)/(C+D). lo and hi are optional
		  numeric scale limits. If unspecified, they are deduced from the data.

		  Enclose spec in double-quotes ("") if it includes white space.

		  A single spec is permitted for the x axis. If unspecified, time is used.

       -y spec	  y axis specification with spec in the same form as for -x. Up to 5  spec  argu-
		  ments separated by a semi-colon (;) may be given for -y. The -y default is:


       Example 1 Examples of the sag command.

       To see today's CPU utilization:

	 example$ sag

       To see activity over 15 minutes of all disk drives:

	 example$ TS=`date +%H:%M`
	 example$ sar -o /tmp/tempfile 60 15
	 example$ TE=`date +%H:%M`
	 example$ sag -f /tmp/tempfile -s $TS -e $TE -y "r+w/s[dsk]"

       /usr/adm/sa/sadd    daily data file for day dd
