Record Mac Activity to Generate CPU Usage Report

Hi,

I'm wanting to track the CPU/RAM usage for certain users. I want to see if our Sophos Endpoint Security is spiking in its usage of the computers and know if it's possibly slowing down the engineers who work on our software. I saw a program called "OS Track", but it looks like it's been abandoned for some time (it's still 32-bit), and the original web page is offline. Is there another tool we could use? One that could make additional reports in addition to the general "Application Use" time that Jamf already records for how long an app is open? Or anything else really, such as a script I can run on the computers throughout the day. Thanks!

Have a look at the output of

powermetrics -f text -s tasks -n 0 --show-initial-usage --show-process-energy --hide-cpu-duty-cycle

That's good. Is there a way for that to run every so often (say every 15 minutes) and get output sent back to us? Or if I want to see something like that, i've seen Watchman recommended.
