Hi all,
I'm looking for a way to log resource usage on my webserver (OS X 10.4
client). I apologize if this has been gone over, I tried searching the
archives, but the most relevant question I found concerned how do
identify a rogue MS SQL instruction (and we use mySQL here), AFTER the
resource usage was noticed.

The ideal application would:
   Monitor CPU usage by service, possibly with a limiter so it would
only log usage > a set amount
   Monitor Bandwidth, separated by in/out, maybe with destination IP?
(For httpd, ftp, sftp, ssh, telnet, etc not only 'web' traffic)
   Monitor RAM statistics

Any other features would be great too, but for now this would do. This
important thing is writing this to a log file. Is there a way to get the
built-in Activity Monitor to log to a file? I hadn't found one. I work
for a non-profit organization so cost needs to be fairly low (gratis
would be great).
