How to get only %idle value in Sar report

Hi,

When I do sar it gives me %usr, %sys, %wio & %idle. However, I am looking for some trick which will give me only %idle value. Please let me know what argument I should pass to get only %idle value of sar report.

Thanks

Chandan,
Check this out, with time and %value:

# sar -u 5 5 | perl -lnae 'print "$F[0] $F[4]"'

Cheers,
Raj.
