what's the status of this bug? I see customer case is closed. Would it be possible to get the problematic sa daily data file from customer, if he is still able to reproduce the issue?
Upstream fix can be found here, but without any note on reproducer:
I would like to see the patch backported in RHEL-6, but I would rather avoid manually modifying sa files for reproducer purposes..
I wasn't able to reproduce the bug even by modifying the sa daily data file, thus I'm closing this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. In case you have any information which could help reproduce the bug, or you came across it again, feel free to reopen this bug.
I can verify that attached sa data file crashes sysstat and that attached patch fixes the crash. I'm proposing this bug for RHEL-6.8, but this late in the cycle, I can't guarantee that it'll be fixed. If this bug is important for you, please talk to the PM.
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.
