when running mpstat or vmstat in solaris, sys is using the cpu alot more than usr. How can I find out what the system is doing and why it is hogging up the resources, slowing the system down.

I am running SQL Remote Sybase replication process on Solaris 10. The hardware is a V880 with 8CPU and 32GB memory. WHen the process gets to "writetext", mpstat shows that sys is using more of the cpu than usr, and the server is very slow, even to type simple commands. How can I tell what the sys is doing? Any ideas how I can track this?
