    Default system load logfile?

    Is there an application that can display the system load (say, percent CPU usage) over about a day? I was thinking maybe something like top || topfile.txt or something like that. That would be a BIG file (if it even worked...)

    Hah! Well, that worked OK. Can slow the poll rate... But it would be nice to be able to select out just the CPU times...

    Perhaps "acct".

    Another package that works well for producing reports is sysstat. It's
    CLI based but works well without using any noticeable system resources.
