CPU load average + how to get cpu load average for history of X hours [Resolved]

We all know we can get average CPU load as:

 10:09:22 up 2 days,  1:44,  1 user,  load average: 20.01, 20.03, 22.05

but this shows only

load average over the last 1 minute is 22.05
load average over the last 5 minute is 20.03
load average over the last 15 minute is 20.01

We want a list of load averages for the last X hours. Is there any Linux (we're using RHEL) command that can show the history of average CPU load for the last X hours?
