Description Need Real Name 2000-11-10 15:59:04 UTC
I regulary get the messages like one below generated by some job started by
cron :
-----
Cannot open /var/log/sa/sa09: No such file or directory
-----

The files which are created in /var/log/sa
are sar02 sar03 sar09 etc.
Note they are sar09, NOT sa09 (an "r" in the middle ) as in the error
message.

Comment 1 Need Real Name 2000-11-22 16:10:10 UTC
Is is possible to fix this problem with sysstat-3.2.4-5
(missed or extra "r" in the log file name).
My e-mail gets polluted with e-mails like this:

Subject: Cron <root@imap1> /usr/lib/sa/sa2 -A &
X-Cron-Env: <SHELL=/bin/bash>
X-Cron-Env: <PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin>

Cannot open /var/log/sa/sa21: No such file or directory
