Data sar and inedt

I am the newest of newbies. Please excuse my ignorance. I have come across these two executables, sar and inedt, and am unfamiliar with their function. I have searched my limited resource library and would appreciate any insight available.

Rgds,

Ren

I never heard of inedt. Maybe you're thinking of inetd.

I place to start would be the unix man pages. You should be able to type "man sar" and "man inetd" to see them. Try that first and see if you still have any questions.

Thank you for the info. I'll check. Incedentally, it was - inetd - my fingers were momentarily tangled.

Question

What other options are there for finding out their functions? The system is unavailable at the moment. Also, I am curious as to the contents the the /dev directory, and if I should poke around and see what is in it. Advice?

The man pages are on the web. You should search the web for man pages that exactly match your particular version of unix. This is especially important with sar. But here are a couple of pages I found...

sar man page

inetd man page

The /dev directory is device files (what you would call drivers in the Windows world). Unix treats EVERYTHING as a file. For example, use the tty command to see what device you're attached to. Then do you can use echo to simply echo back what you want, and redirect it to that device:
Code:
$ tty
/dev/pts/1
$ echo "Hello" > /dev/pts/1
Hello
$

Hope that helps a little.
