    vmstat help!

    Hi Guys,

    Im a newbie on SLES10 and am currently running vmstat to a file to monitor our vmware server manually each day.

    I need to find out how to schedule the vmstat or better still have the vmstat running 24/7 saving to a new file each day.

    Are any of the above possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not familiar with the tool, how do you normally run it? Is it a command line program?

    Yes the command I currently run is "vmstat -n 60 > [filename]"

    This basically takes a snapshot of performance every 60 seconds and logs it to a file.

    I need to find out if this can be scheduled to save to a new file each day?
