Hi,

when I run the sar command I get the following

[root@xxxx ~]# sar -d
Requested activities not available in file


but sar -d 5 1 works

what's the difference in these options


Also instead of just one month of sar files how can I have 3 years of sar files ?

forgot to mention, you probably need to restart sysstat;

# service sysstat restart
