Would like to use sar to look at an hour of time, is there a difference of using
Sar -d 3600 1 as suppose to using a sar 60 60? I am not sure if my thinking is correct on if I run
A sar 3600 1, I will get a shot of the full hour, and totals for the hour, where using the 60 60 I get pretty much the same results, but its broken to by the minutes.
thank you in advance for the advice.

Yes, the overall value reported at the end of the hour will be much the same either way, but why, for the sake of 60 data-points compromise the granularity of the measurement? That is, with the measurements reported every minute you can see the relative hot-spots...

0 * * * * /usr/lbin/sa/sa1 1200 3
0 0 * * * /usr/lbin/sa/sa2 -s 00:00 -e 23:45 -1 3600 -A
You can then run sar anytime with the different options (see sar online manual) to get your statistics
