How we will evaluate the system performance and database performance using the below.

top - 10:35:10 up 127 days, 19:42,  1 user,  load average: 0.46, 0.53, 0.72
Tasks: 329 total,   1 running, 325 sleeping,   0 stopped,   3 zombie
Cpu(s):  0.1%us,  0.1%sy,  0.0%ni, 99.6%id,  0.2%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.0%si,  0.0%st
Mem:  33015292k total, 17922080k used, 15093212k free,   363612k buffers
Swap: 33423352k total,   228652k used, 33194700k free, 13091556k cached

From that snapshot in time it doesn't look like there is anything impacting the system.

Maybe I'm not understanding what you are asking.

What do you mean "evaluate"?
Were you experiencing performance issues when you took that snapshot?
Are you wanting to know how to use "top" to help figure out performance issues?

Sorry but "how" to use a tool is above a simple Q&A site like this.

In a nutshell, you can use top to look at what processes are using what resources.

If you see a slowdown in the system, top should tell you the most resource consuming processes.  Then you need to figure out what those processes are doing but that is outside of what top does.

The man page will have all the available options and what they mean.

You probably need to start with the load average, which you can also get with the uptime command.

Here's your first line of output:
top - 10:35:10 up 127 days, 19:42,  1 user,  load average: 0.46, 0.53, 0.72

The load average seems very low.  How many CPU cores do you have on your system?  That's a good general ballpark figure to stay under.  If you have 12 cores, you can safely have a load average of 12.0 and your system will remain responsive.  If it's above 12, then you start looking at the CPU and Mem columns to see what processes are using your system heavily.
