Sorry Nuno... Got linux on the brain wwwwwaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy too much.

I asked around from several AIX people I know and the closest they suggested is 
nmon for AIX:
Can't see it providing the block level detail you might be wanting but in terms 
of aggregated ... Maybe ... Assuming you haven't stumbled onto it on your own 
that is.

I'm aware of what is available in Linux.
But I said Unix. As in Aix.
strace is a RPITA to use on something like RMAN.
Pity IBM - of all companies! - provides so little gut-view software for that.
Although there is probably some obscure add-on to Tivoli or similar to do all I 
need - meh!...
