sar: Corrupted data file

Hi,

I am Using HP Unix 11.31 in our environment.

We are using a third party software for monitoring the Servers.

In our superdome the software is not working and throwing the following error.

sar: Corrupted data file
perfparse.sh[17]: %usr: syntax error

In All other rx servers it is working perfectly.

What might be the reason for it?
Thanks and Regards,
Manoj K

Hi,

I have raised the issue with the software team.

What is my question is why it is happening only with the napr from SuperDome.

Thers is any specific reason?

Re: sar: Corrupted data file

Your third party software may be failing because the sar(1m) data files are corrupted: sar: Corrupted data file

I assume these are from the cronjob that you can use with sa1(1M). So just remove these files and see if that fixes things?

Remove the old sa files as Dennis said: /var/adm/sa/saxx where xx is two digits representing the date.

Re: sar: Corrupted data file

Hi All,

Thanks for the great support.

The issue is solved by updating the latest sar patch "PHCO_39214".

Re: sar: Corrupted data file


Not only the new sar patch installation, also the removal of the SAR-MEMFS utility helped me to solve the issue.
