If you're capturing regular sar data, (With the sa1/sa2 scripts) this could provide a lot of useful information beyond what top provides. (You can profile the performance on a system quite extensively with good sar output). It would be helpful if you could make the sar data from the last week or so available for download. (If available)

The files are usually located in /var/adm/sa and should be readable from userland. I've found that FreeBSD or Linux boxes don't usually have sar enabled, (unlike a lot of commercial *NIXes) but it's worth a shot. Just tar 'em up and put them somewhere for download.

If the data is indeed available but you don't feel comfortable sharing it, there are some utilities available to analyse the data directly, such as:

Sadly it requires a commercial license and I can't think of any cost-free alternatives. Readers please chime in if you know of any similar analysis utilities.

Hoping to help,
