Release Notes: It is now possible to specify a starting and ending time with sadf -x (this option displays sar data in XML). Interval and count parameters are also taken into account. sar and sadf sometimes didn't handle COMMENT records properly: This is now fixed. The HZ variable was not explicitly set in sadc.c: This has been fixed too. sargraph (a shell script used to make graphs based on sadf XML output) has been added.
Release Notes: Sysstat should now be able to pretty-print device names whose minor numbers are greater than or equal to 256. The Sadc manual page, NLS, and FAQ have been updated.
