SAR does not seem to be updating.
Initially, I was getting errors about a var/log directory not existing when I ran 'sar'. I checked the config file for sysstat and ENABLED was already set to true. I manually started the sysstat init script and now instead of getting that error when running sar, I get this:
Linux 2.4.18 (blah) 01/10/06
01:23:33 LINUX RESTART
My understanding was I shouldn't have to restart the server? However, 1:23:33 is about 14 hours ago. I can't restart the server because it is remote and in production.
I'm not really sure how to debug or resolve this as I've never encountered a problem with sar before. Any suggestions?
I'm running sar version 6.0.2
