Hello atte!
   Two things I can think of: Have you tried the normal top? - I don't know 
about its accuracy.
   Another thing: A friend of mine once wrote some algorythms and used some 
output found in the proc directory. he said there was just one problem: He had 
to take care, that no other CPU hungry processes were running, on any 
processes, that might cause problems (cron jobs, hungry user-apps, etc.).
   Don't know what he did exactly though. But perhaps worth investigating.
   Kindest regards
