My system activity reports are no longer being generated. Here's the
setup:

cron says :
0,15,30,45 * * * * /usr/lib/sa/sa1

So every 15 minutes, I gather information. That part works, as I can look
in /usr/adm/sa and see the saDD files binary data.

Then every night, cron does the following:
/usr/lib/sa/sa2 -s 0:00 -e 23:58 -i 900 -A
The /usr/adm/sarDD files from sa2 have been zero-length the last 4 days
(or so).

from the command sar -ru 10 10 generates 10 reports of memory
and swap file usage 10 times, ten seconds apart.

sar, by itself, generates this strange listing dated 1969
#sar

SCO_SV genie 3.2v5.0.5 AMD-K6 3DISA 12/31/1969

16:00:00 %usr %sys %wio %idle (-u)
16:00:00 0 11 89 0



So it LOOKS like all the underlying data gathering is happening properly,
but the report generator is failing.

Help and pointers and diagnostice appreciated.
