Tools vmproc & eps tools

Hi All
I am new to this wonderful message forum.I have high hopes on all the members in helping me out.I am looking out for a tool on HPUX which does work similarly to vmproc on TRU64.I am providing the information about vmproc just in case you know a tool giving similar results on HPUX do tell me.
"The purpose of the vmproc command is to display information related to the virtual memory of a given process. It also enables to know which libraries are used by the process. Each map (set of virtual pages) is associated with a library name (found in the symbol file created with the ld command) or with the user program. Its size (given in pages and bytes), its kind (data, text, heap or stack), its read and write mode and its size variations are also displayed."

HP has a program called glance that can do this and more. But it's a separate product.

Can you give more details regarding glance?Is there separate tool just at par with vmproc?
Also I need HPUX equivalent of eps."The eps command enables to show process CPU consumption and memory usage (both virtual and physical) in a repetitive or single shot mode." .
Thanks in advance for the valuable input.

Hi
I have a working code for vmproc and eps on compaq.I want to port it to HPUX.I need to find out what system functions to call to implement the tools.Also glance is a third party tool which has tried to integrate a lot of things.But I could not figure out if it tells about virtual memory also.Can i know what all functions it calls to implement the functionality?

Thanks again for glance idea.But our team is not in favour of buying a different product.

Any suggestions of freeware with source-code ideas are welcomed with arms wide open.
