Track pid of high CPU causing process

We are facing intermittent high CPU issue in one of our Solaris server. There is an EPagent installed with these scripts - and . vmstat shows overall high CPU utilization and  shows top 10 pids.These scripts run every 10 mins.


Though vmstat shows high cpu utilization , say 98 %, the pids displayed by doesn't reflect that. I guess it is because of 1) the difference in execution time of these scripts - for eg - takes around 2.5 secs to get executed whereas takes around 500ms to get executed. 2) high cpu is only a spike as it gets normal within milliseconds. vmstat and TopProcess must fetch data at one instant to get the pid which causes cpu spike.


Is there any resolution for this?
