** AIX-specific answers only please *** Don't give me Solaris-specific or Linux-specific answers.

other than using ps with the "pcpu" option on an AIX box, is there any other way to find which processes are taking up most CPU time ? I would prefer a list in descending order of utilization.. short scripts are OK too.
