5.1 Flags

-a
--list-all-names
Force sa not to sort those command names with unprintable characters and those used only once into the `***other' group.

-b
--sort-sys-user-div-calls
Sort the output by the sum of user and system time divided by the number of calls.

-c
--percentages
Print percentages of total time for the command's user, system, and real time values.

-d
--sort-avio
Sort the output by the average number of disk I/O operations.

-D
--sort-tio
Print and sort the output by the total number of disk I/O operations.

-f
--not-interactive
When using the --threshold option, assume that all answers to interactive queries will be affirmative.

-i
--dont-read-summary-file
Don't read the information in savacct.

-j
--print-seconds
Instead of printing total minutes for each category, print seconds per call.

-k
--sort-cpu-avmem
Sort the output by cpu time average memory usage.

-K
--sort-ksec
Print and sort the output by the cpu-storage integral.

-l
--separate-times
Print separate columns for system and user time; usually the two are added together and listed as cpu.

-m
--user-summary
Print the number of processes and number of CPU minutes on a per-user basis.

-n
--sort-num-calls
Sort the output by the number of calls. This is the default sorting method.

-r
--reverse-sort
Sort output items in reverse order.

-s
--merge
Merge the summarized accounting data into the summary files savacct and usracct.

-t
--print-ratio
For each entry, print the ratio of real time to the sum of system and user times. If the sum of system and user times is too small to report--the sum is zero---*ignore* will appear in this field.

-u
--print-users
For each command in the accounting file, print the userid and command name. After printing all entries, quit. Note: this flag supersedes all others.

-v num
--threshold num
Print commands which were executed num times or fewer and await a reply from the terminal. If the response begins with y, add the command to the **junk** group.

--separate-forks
It really doesn't make any sense to me that the stock version of sa separates statistics for a particular executable depending on whether or not that command forked. Therefore, GNU sa lumps this information together unless this option is specified.

--sort-real-time
Sort the output by the "real time" (elapsed time) for each command.

--debug
Print verbose internal information.

-V
--version
Print sa's version number.

-h
--help
Print sa's usage string and default locations of system files to standard output.

Note: if more than one sorting option is specified, the list will be sorted by the one specified last on the command line.
