    Hi Kuldeep,

    Thanks for the good info on SAR..,Not sure if this is a right platform to talk about problem with Sar version 8.1.5.
    One of the issues with sar is that the “sar -A” command gives the datestamp exactly past one month in the first line of the output..
    Any suggestion/help would be much appreciated..
