Record topas command output

How to record output of below command in a text file.

topas -P

or is there any other command which will do the same thing in AIX.

I would like to get a report something similar to below commands.

top -b
prstat -c

you can use redirection to send the command output to a file instead of the standard output (that is your display device).
top -b > top_output.txt

top -b

is not available in AIX.

Set up nmon, it can write this information to a file. nmon2rrd can convert it to a graphic, if needed.

Check the link: nmon

@zaxxon is it possible for nmon to record only process related information (pid,process,user &cpu) ,similar to pressing t/u in nmon interactice mode.

IIRC, it records some information automatically so it is not just the plain output of your top processes. You can check the documentation for nmon and try it out.
Here a short excerpt from the documentation:
nmon -fT -s 15 -c 240

... line also captures the top processes. Both of these will create the output file in the current directory called: <hostname>_date_time.nmon
This file is in a comma separated values format and can be imported into a spread sheet directly.
