Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, the return value of the write() function did not correspond to the actual number of bytes written. Consequently, the sadc utility terminated with the "Cannot write data to system activity file: Success" error message even though the write operation had finished successfully. With this update, sadc successfully writes the remaining input, fixing this bug.
