Howto: Sar and Ksar ( Part two )

This is the part two of my test with sar and ksar. I tested the remote feature in ksar. In short, you use ksar to execute the same command that got executed just before midnight in the second post, in other words, the daily summary.

Having spare time tonight, here’s few screenshot..

Ksar remote connection

Click on: Data => “Launch SSH Command”

Enter the login information: user@ip-address, and click on yes.

You can click on yes here.

After you are asked to enter the SAR command. The default will be good. Click on Yes.

After that you can see the classic view, the same on we’ve got when we loaded text files.

I’d like to show you another sweet things with ksar. You can open few windows within ksar and arrange them, so you can compare your server stats. Open more than one window ( click on file => New window  ) and then click on Window => Tile

That’s it! It not harder than loading a local text file.. I’ll post a third post on Sar and kSar this week for people who would like to get a multiple day report.

Thanks for reading!

    Did you use keypair authentication for your ssh connection? I’m finding that ksar keeps asking for a password for the remote machine, although a shell ssh login connects perfectly using keypairs.

    thx
