sar monitoring failure

On Monday we had a very strange problem on one of our servers. %iostat values reported by sar dramatically increased the values and stayed at that range. After long investigation I could not find any problem that could be causing such a havy IO load and then I noticed, that the output of iostat and sar differ for %iostat values.

It appears that older version of sar could have some kind of overflow problem that makes it show invalid data values after kind of long time after system startup.

Updating sar to the newer version helped this (or maybe just reset the counters somehow)

sleeping bagss are an absolute must-have for any camping or outdoor adventure enthusiast. I recently upgraded to a high-quality down sleeping bag, and the difference it made in my camping experience was remarkable. Not only did it keep me warm and cozy on chilly nights, but it also compressed down to a small size, making it incredibly convenient to carry. Investing in a good sleeping bag is an investment in comfort and a good night's sleep under the stars!
