for AIX you have the standard tools -

vmstat -  reports statistics about kernel threads, virtual memory, disks, traps and CPU activity.
netstat -  displays the contents of various network-related data structures for active connections.
iostat -  is used for monitoring system input/output device loading  
Next, there is
topas - reports selected local and remote system statistics.
Another tool, which you have to install first if your system is earlier than AIX 5300-09, is
nmon - this free tool gives you a huge amount of important performance information in one go
Get nmon from here, if needed
Use 'man vmstat', 'man netstat', 'man iostat' , 'man topas'  and 'nmon -h' to learn how to use these tools.
Should you have further questions, please let me know.
