New to linux and I was going over Linux commands and when I type in any of the sysstat tools (iostat,mpstat,sadc,sar)I  get a "command not found" message displayed.  Any guidance would be appreciated.

You may not have the package that contains those installed. On a RedHat system it would be the sysstat package and you can check for that with 'rpm -q sysstat'

You may not be logged in as root. a number of these commands must be run as root to produce valid results, become root by typing 'su -'

can I find sysstat package on the redhat website? Does it have to coincide w/what version of redhat you are running?
