Tools Kernel usage is high

Hi all,

I have a solaris box, and I would like to know if anyone has commands to check kernel usage's.

solaris box is having cpu 100 % issue. .

I have used sar -u 10 5 it shows 35 % kernel usage.

If you can guide with some docs that would be good..

waiting for your reply
