Record CPU usage for a given process over time
Authored by: robg on Oct 30, '09 04:10:04AM

When I was testing Instruments, part of my problem with it was the amount of CPU time that it took -- I was seeing ranges from 8% up to 30% for sampling while doing the other stuff.

That seems excessive, especially when I'm trying to give as much CPU as possible to the app I'm measuring.

Probably there are ways to reduce this -- I need to read the Help file for Instruments, it seems (as I can't even see how to export at first glance).
