Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-02-14 13:30:36 EST
Cron, or more precisely 'anacron', is in a habit of generating the
following error messages (depending on circumstances):


Cannot open /var/log/sa/sa10: No such file or directory

or '/var/log/sa/sa14', or whatever the case may be.  This seems to
depend on a date.

Can we have /etc/cron.daily/sysstat modified as follows, please:


[ -r "/var/log/sa/sa$(date +%d)" ] || exit 0
# generate a daily summary of process accounting.
/usr/lib/sa/sa2 -A &
