sar can be used in 2 forms:
sar -options interval no_of_samples, e.g. sar -d 10 5, to do 5 "samples" at 10 second intervals, or
sar -options [-f sar_log] to read a daily log [sa19 is todays log - the default]

If you are  not running sar logging in roots crontab, the files in /var/adm/sa won't be getting created, so you will have to use the first form of the command.
