Comment 1 Frank Ch. Eigler 2012-09-20 10:54:37 EDT
sadf -x /var/log/sa/saNN | xmllint   fails:

-:17: parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch: statistics line 12 and timestamp

From the XML:

  <timestamp date="2012-09-12" time="04-10-01" utc="1" interval="600"/>
         <cpu number="all" user="7.10" nice="0.00" system="1.29" iowait="0.27" steal="0.00" idle="91.34"/>

Note the extraneous / in the opening <timestamp  tag.
Comment 2 Frank Ch. Eigler 2012-09-20 10:59:36 EDT
sysstat-10.0.2-2.fc16 appears to have this bug;
RHEL6's sysstat 9.0.4 doesn't.
Comment 3 Frank Ch. Eigler 2012-09-20 11:26:42 EDT
However, xmllint --valid fails sadf -x's output on each of rhel5, rhel6, f16, so there is a more systemic problem here.
Comment 4 Nathan Scott 2012-09-24 19:35:14 EDT
Checked latest version of sysstat, and this issue has been fixed.  Have a patch for sysstat-10.0.2 ... will attach shortly.
