Without knowing the OS, check the man pages for vmstat, iostat, sar.

Check the internet via a search engine for top or others (it matters what your OS is)

ps -ef |more

You might also try ps -ef |more
use the |more to see the processes page by page

Sorry that I didn't mention the OS.
But it concerns AIX 4.3.

Try to use the top command. It shows you all the processes and what percentage of the cpu they use, in real time. For linux top is built in but I don't know if the command exists for AIX.
