       sa1 - Collect and store binary data in the system activity daily data file.

       /usr/lib/sa/sa1 [ interval count ]

       The  sa1  command  is a shell procedure variant of the sadc command and handles all of the
       flags and parameters of that command. The sa1 command collects and store  binary  data  in
       the  /var/log/sa/sadd file, where the dd parameter indicates the current day. The interval
       and count parameters specify that the record should be written  count  times  at  interval
       seconds. If you do not specify these parameters, a single record is written.

       The sa1 command is designed to be started automatically by the cron command.

       To  create a daily record of sar activities, place the following entry in your root or adm
       crontab file:

       0 8-18 * * 1-5 /usr/lib/sa/sa1 1200 3 &

	      Indicate the daily data file, where the dd parameter is a number	representing  the
	      day of the month.
