The problem is that it's hard to watch top in a cron job ;o) I need to
know what things look like when I'm not here (and when nobody's here).
That was everyone's gut response -- look at top! But then when they were
reminded that top was a tool you watch not a tool you parse, they thought
twice ("there must be a way in ps! let's try ps!").
