The nmon and nmon_analyzer are free tools from IBM that are useful for displaying and analyzing AIX performance.
The nmon tool is similar to "topas", which displays real-time AIX performance statistics. But unlike "topas", nmon presents more information and can capture data for analysis and presentation.
The nmon_analyzer tool analyzes the captured performance data. It can create a spreadsheet showing graphs of performance trends. Some of the nmon_analyzer metrics include:
