Well, you could make it a _little_ more capture friendly using

top -n 1 -b

Then you probibly want something that stores this data for later
datamining (SQL database is usualy a good idea).

You could also use things like RRDTool on the output from the top

There is no (AFAIK) ready software that do what you want (as you want
the induvidual process name as well).
