Based on the IBM blog about using nmon command as a performance measurement or monitoring tool, this link is giving you in detail information: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/aix/library/au-analyze_aix/

The mentioned blog entry covers:

The nmon tool is designed for AIX and Linux performance specialists to use for monitoring and analyzing performance data, including:

  • CPU utilization
  • Memory use
  • Kernel statistics and run queue information
  • Disks I/O rates, transfers, and read/write ratios
  • Free space on file systems
  • Disk adapters
  • Network I/O rates, transfers, and read/write ratios
  • Paging space and paging rates
  • CPU and AIX specification
  • Top processors
  • IBM HTTP Web cache
  • User-defined disk groups
  • Machine details and resources
  • Asynchronous I/O — AIX only
  • Workload Manager (WLM) — AIX only
  • IBM TotalStorage® Enterprise Storage Server® (ESS) disks — AIX only
  • Network File System (NFS)
  • Dynamic LPAR (DLPAR) changes — only pSeries p5 and OpenPower for either AIX or Linux

Next to nmon, there are a couple of AIX commands known for performance monitoring / please see here:
