It might be overkill for you, but I tend to use ganglia for these things.   
You won't be able pipe it to a text file, though.  Alternatively, you  
could run sar (assuming your OS has a sar port) out of cron.  But sar is  
not exactly user friendly and will not break down usage by process, only  
for the system as a unit.  If you really want to go the poor man's route,  
you can actually get all that info from ps, do some minimal processing and  
have a nice text file for you to analyze.
