sysstat-isag in RHEL4


Hello,
when i try to install the package i find:

# up2date -i sysstat-isag

Fetching Obsoletes list for channel: rhel-x86_64-es-4...

Fetching rpm headers...
########################################

Name Version Rel
----------------------------------------------------------


The following packages you requested were not found:
sysstat-isag

When I search "sysstat-isag" in RH web page I find the package is available in my channel.
Anyway, I download the package and try to install manually:
# rpm -Uvh sysstat-isag-5.0.5-14.21as.i386.rpm
error: Error de dependencias:
sysstat = 5.0.5-14.21as se necesita para sysstat-isag-5.0.5-14.21as.i386
#

What's the matter ??? sysstat-isag depends on sysstat-isag ????

It's telling you that package "sysstat" version 5.0.5-14.21as is required to install package "sysstat-isag". That is to say they are two different packages.

Probable full name of the packages is sysstat.5.0.5-14.21as.i386.rpm.

Often it occurs that packages with a dash in the name are extensions to functionality provided by a basic package.

Type "rpm -q sysstat" to see if it is installed and if so what verion it is. Chances are it isn't installed so you need to install it first.

In my system I have:
# rpm -q sysstat
sysstat-5.0.5-19.el4

And the very last version of sysstat-isag I've found is:
sysstat-isag-5.0.5-14.21as.i386

When I try to install sysstat-5.0.5-14.... logically, the system tells me that I have installed a newer version.

I'm stucked !!

It seems the version of sysstat and systat-isag must match. You either need to find a later version of sysstat-isage or find the earlier sysstat version then remove the one you have and install it.

However, on rereading your version and doing some Google research it appears the one you downloaded is for RHEL 2.1 and NOT for RHEL 4 so I'd suggest against doing this. RHEL 2.1 had a 2.4 kernel and RHEL 4 has a 2.6 kernel so they are very different. You'd end up with quite a mess.

I can't really find much information for ISAG after 2004 when RedHat noted there was a bug in sysstat and sysstat-isag (for RHEL 2.1). It makes me think ISAG has been deprecated.

You might want to look into something like GNUplot for graphing.
