a while back we discussed aix ibm healthcheck scripts (5.3 and 6.1), there were some commercial options out there but you also mentioned some freely accessible healthcheck scripts online. I searched and could find any, can you point me in the right direction, including what types of health metrics they test for?

You can use "nmon" and the NMON analyzer to collect and analyze performance data.
nmon collects almost everything, from CPU, paging, I/O, memory to adapter throughput, filesystems and much more.

https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/wikis/home?lang=en#!/wiki/Power%20Systems/page/nmon_analyser

The above page contains the download link as well as links to FAQs and articles.

If you are in an LPAR environment (HMC/IVM) you can use "lpar2rrd" to collect and visualize CPU and memory statistics:

Here you can find a neat script to check quite a bunch of things:

(Needs a bit customization, but not too much).

Ganglia is a big, yet free monitoring system for clusters and grids. It's really complex and hard to implement.
For people running high performance clusters it's nearly a must-have.
Here is the homepage:
http://ganglia.sourceforge.net/
and here are all the RPM binaries for AIX:
