Searching about NMON I find the SARMON. This is a great solution for reports of capacity on Solaris.

If you know the NMON (website) for AIX e Linux and need for Solaris you can use the SARMON (website)

For reports you can use the original tool

The installation is very ease

1. Get the .zip file

2. Save on /var/tmp

3. Unzip the .zip

# unzip

4. Make backup of original files

# cp /usr/bin/sar /usr/bin/sar.orig
# cp /usr/bin/timex /usr/bin/timex.orig
# cp /usr/lib/sa/sadc /usr/lib/sa/sadc.orig

5. Move the sarmon to /usr/local

# mv /var/tmp/sarmon_v1.01.bin_sparc /usr/local/sarmon

6. Copy files

# cp /usr/local/sarmon/sar /usr/bin/sar
# cp /usr/local/sarmon/timex /usr/bin/timex
