I am looking to convert sar data to graphcal representation for memory, cpu utilization. Is there any such utility or a way to do . I have op-manager but it doesn't give me really good graph or correct cpu and memory utlilization data and graph. I have all suse linux servers. I have heard cacti but it will be more work to setup such thing as I already have op-manager but it seems it is not useful, so looking somehow to use sar and convert to its data to graphs

Hi,

how about kSar?
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ksar/

It needs Java 1.5 or higher and processes "sarxx" report files or "sar -A" output redirected to a text file.

ksar seems good but I am not sure how can I get the statistics for range of dates ( e.g. one week) or month. How can I concat range of days.

I also check sarcheck.com, but that seems expensive for me

Up to now I didn't find another solution as to just concatenate the needed sarxx files by means of "cat".

cat sar01 sar02 sar03 ... sarnn > sar.total

ksar will sort the data correctly, that's no problem.

You can give the cat command as an input option to kSar ("-input 'cmd://...' "), in this case without "> outputfile", of course.

It's not very elegant, but I don't see a better way.

# cat sa.2011_02_27 sa.2011_02_28  > sa_total

sar -f sa_total -A > /usr/local/src/sar_g/`hostname`.sar.tt.txt
End of system activity file unexpected

I get this error End of system activity file unexpected".

I've been talking about "sar" files (i.e. ASCII files as produced by "sar -A" or "sa2"), not the binary "sa" files, which you can't "cat" together!

ksar still a manual process. Is there way I can graph the trend from sar data. Which one you think better cacti or munin ? I have op-manager but I don't find it is useful in collecting stats and draw a trend graphs

Afaik neither cacti nor munin can handle sar data.

How about sar2rrd?
I never used it, but I think I'll give it a try one of these days.
