Is there a SVR4-like "sar" program anywhere?

Is there a SVR4-like "sar" program anywhere?

I'm trying to locate a SVR4-like "sar" program for linux. This accounting
program shows you 20 minute buckets of the system accounting - that is, you
get to see what percent of the machine was idle, in the system, or executing
user programs.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. I don't monitor this group daily,

1. "sar -f <file>" fails with "sar: malloc failed"

I'm trying to run sar by specifying a specific data file:

% ls -l xac
-rw-rw-rw-   1 staff   staff      4218553 Aug  4 10:56 xac

% sar -f xac

SunOS stsun1 5.5.1 Generic_103640-08 sun4u    01/14/70

16:24:50    %usr    %sys    %wio   %idle
21:01:36        unix restarts
sar: malloc failed
Resource temporarily unavailable

Looking at a truss output of this, sar is trying to allocate 765Mb.

15961:  brk(0x0002A220)                                 = 0
15961:  brk(0x2FD28220)      Err#11 EAGAIN

Any ideas why sar is doing this?
