Log CPU/Load Usage On Your Mac

This trick I have been wondering about for a while. The idea behind this is that it logs your load usage of your computer. You can then graph, using a program like Excel, this data. You can use this data to see how your computers load is running over a period of time. Like many methods in Terminal there are hundreds of ways in which you could do this, how many ways can you paint a picture? This tutorial, although a bit complicated, goes into a lot of different subjects. Most of them won’t be talked about in a lot of detail. There is a lot of pages on the web which goes into more detail on each of the different areas covered in this post, a quick search will reveal them. This post has taken me a long time to prepare, due to a lot of little problems a long the way, it has taken me a couple of hours to debug a little problem. You will probably encounter them too. In the comments if you have any questions I will try and answer them as well as possible.
