Yes. Just upload the SAR data file into the tool and hold on for 30 seconds to 3 minutes for the tool to process the input file. The time may vary based on the size of the input SAR data file

There could be a scenario where the input file is processed without any issues but there were no charts generated. This could be because of date format issue.
Please try generating your sarfile again using

For single day file:
S_TIME_FORMAT=ISO sar -A -f /var/log/sa/sa > /tmp/sa_$(uname -n).txt
For multiple days files:
ls /var/log/sa/sa?? | xargs -i sh -c "S_TIME_FORMAT=ISO sar -A -f {}"  >  /tmp/sar_$(uname -n).txt

If the issue persist, please send a query via "Contact us" section.
