solaris sar utility

Hi Experts,

I would like to inquire on solaris sar utility.
- Does the utility come with the OS? (say, solaris 8)
- If not, I would like to know where to get it, and would need installation help.

Any assistance on the subject would be appreciated.

Thank you.

sar is standard with all Solaris versions.

It's in the SUNWaccu package.

Type in

pkginfo SUNWaccu

to see if is installed.  If not, grab the Solaris CD's and install it.

Once installed, to enable as root, type

crontab -e sys

and uncomment the cronjobs and adjust collection periods as required.

Bill Calkins has a handy guide to using sar. It's available in a couple of places on the web. Try:
