On SCO Open-Enterprise 3.2v4.2 there is a nice tool called "sar"
(SystemActivityReport) that reports Disk-Usage/Swap/IO´s/CPUusage/...

On SCO Open-Enterprise 5.x there is also a more userfriendly tool called
SCO-Doctor to report the bottlenecks of your machine.

I don´t know what UNIX-System you´re using - perhaps you´ve got some
equivalent tool there. Just use them.
