[SunHELP] actual, not average CPU load?

I am running application tests on Solaris 9 SPARC. Several daemons are 
running. It is necessary to measure the performance of some of these 
daemons for a certain period of time.

The problem is that `top` shows an average CPU load for a certain 
process, and I need the actual CPU load at some certain moments. In 
other words, I need a tool that would give me absolute, not average CPU 
load values. If the daemon is consuming 50% of CPU at 15:00:01, I want 
to see exactly this percentage at this exact time. If it stops the 
processing at 15:00:11, I want to see the CPU load go down at this exact 

Phew. I hope I made myself more or less clear.

What tool would you advise that can monitor the processes the way I have 

Thank you.
