Hi,
first look response, ( it's a long time I took AIX Perf & Tuning :-)

r = 0 : no jobs running, not so good
b = 2 : 2 jobs waiting I/O, not so good too
avm = 80K : 320 Mb of active Ram for jobs
fre = 800 : free slots ... not many
middle colums = 0 : no paging activity : good: no Ram shortage, no Disk I/O
in,sy,cs : device interrupts, system time, context switch, average load
us = 1 : doing nothing for you
sy = 2 : doing nothing for itself
idle = 90 : wasting CPU cycles
wa = 5-90 : waiting fow slow devices to answer, should be network, since not
paging
