    sysutils/bsdsar works pretty well for me.  Only problem is on some
    systems it'll occasionally get confused and parse out the wrong
    values from the commands it runs (top and such) and end up logging
    crazy values such as "0% idle" when it's really "100% idle".

    Despite that problem I'd recommend it -- it's a useful tool IMHO.
