Pros,

I was wondering if there is a way to get sar print the Average of CPU
(Actually anything) on a Solaris 9 box?

For example:
On a solaris 8 box,

/usr/bin/sar -u 1 5

SunOS gorgon 5.8 Generic_108528-04 sun4u    07/29/03

17:35:50    %usr    %sys    %wio   %idle
17:35:51       0       0       0     100
17:35:52       0       0       0     100
17:35:53       0       0       0     100
17:35:54       2       1       0      97
17:35:55       2       0       0      98

Average        1       0       0      99

On a solaris 9 box

/usr/bin/sar -u 1 5  

SunOS troll 5.9 Generic sun4u    07/29/2003

17:09:31    %usr    %sys    %wio   %idle
17:09:32       0       1       0      99
17:09:33       0       0       0     100
17:09:34       0       0       0     100
17:09:35       0       0       0     100
17:09:36       0       0       0     100

(It does not print average)

That's a known bug, number 4723484. Install patch 113716 or upgrade to
Solaris 9 U3 (4/03).

Thanks a lot.
 
 
 

1. average load average?

Hello,

I'm trying to monitor the usage of a machine.  I know about process
accounting, which (as far as I understand) gives feedback about
per-user and per-processname usage.  Can I get a feeling for "how
busy" the machine is from process accounting, or do I need to do this
some other way?

Naively, I would like to know things like the load average over time,
iowait statistics, and that sort of thing, but I am also looking for
suggestions on how to monitor this sort of thing on a longer
timescale.  Any suggestions on either of these (admittedly ill
thought-out) questions?
