7.3 GOLD - Sysstat error
Last modified: 2013-12-09 12:12:14 EST
Description of Problem:
After installing 7.3GOLD I am getting log messages from sysstat that cannot
append data to file
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I think the problem occured after I ran ntp and it changed the system clock.
From: Cron Daemon <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Cron <root@smoogen2> /usr/lib/sa/sa1 1 1
02 May 2002 15:20:00 -0600
Cannot append data to that file
Ok, so it's a once-occuring problem caused by timeshifting on the machine?
(guess thrice what I'll do if you confirm that ;)
What it looks like is that the sa02 file got mangled somehow. A reboot didnt fix
the problem. I had to remove the file and recreate it. I will see in the morning
if the problem re-occurs as ntp brings time in line.
Given the lack of feedback, it probably doesn't.
