Mac OS X Long Term CPU Utilization Reporting

Posted on 2011-02-23

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
The tools I've found so far only show a few minute span at a time, with no capability of logging. I know about terminal's TOP, and Mac's Activity Monitor, but is there a way to see extended time period reports and averages for Memory utilization, Disk I/O, and CPU load?

I need something that I can put on staff laptops, and then view at a later point in time. The users aren't tech savvy, but I need a way to view the data every few days to determine if their setups are sufficient for their day to day tasks.

OSX 10.6.x.

How about snmp?

You'll need an snmp capable monitoring program, such as Opennms. Then run sudo snmpconf -i to setup snmp. I use it to monitor servers, it should work on clients too.
