"From the collected data, you get lots of information
about your server:
Memory paging and its utilization
Network I/O, and transfer statistics
Process creation activity
All block devices activity
"sar output can be used for identifying server bottlenecks.
However, analyzing information provided by sar can be difficult, so
use kSar, which can take sar output and plot a nice easy to
understand graph over period of time."
