Diagnosing an intermittent performance problem

I'm experiencing some slow downs on my PowerBook of the annoying intermittent kind. I'll be browing a page in Safari and get a few seconds of beachball which is gone by the time I can get to Activity Monitor and see where the hold up is.

I'd like a tool that could monitor system activity but instead of giving me real-time summary information like Activity Monitor I want tracking information. For example I want to see, over time, which process went over %% CPU usage and for how long and so on. I want a tool to help diagnose tricky problems and which doesn't require me to be looking at it all the time.

Anyone using such a tool?
