Note: I opened this question on Stackoverflow first and realized that this is the right place for the question. Just stating that it is not a duplicate, already closed the question on SO.
I am new to sar(also new to serverfault) I am getting the following error when trying to open system activity files locally(using Ubuntu 12.04) that were imported from a server.
I placed the files under
/home/someuser/logs and run the command
sar -f sa08. The error I am getting is
Invalid system activity file: sa08 Is there anything that I am not doing right?
Also, is there any other way to open the files without using sar?
