Includes Information on Running sar in Solaris 11

Users concerned about system performance data will find Sandra Henry-Stocker's post on "Getting started with sar" a helpful guide.

Other components that are part of the sar package include sadc, sa1, and sa2. Henry-Stocker also writes about how users can get sar (installed by default) up and running on Solaris.
