On UNIX, we just typically use "top".

I think you might be best off if you didn't think too hard about thread
pool management.  Fine-grained thread management is apparently critical
to Java app servers (at least from discussions I've overheard from Java
people), but Zope just takes care of it for you and you don't need to
think all that much about it.  The presentation link I sent over has
some tips for "tuning" which involves some thread-related settings...
