Better yet you can graph the result using a combination of SNMP and rddtools

Code:

[user@machine:~] top -b -n 1 | grep Mem
[user@machine:~] top -b -n 1 | grep Cpu

From the man page:
Code:

      -b : Batch mode operation
            Starts  top  in  'Batch  mode', which could be useful for
            sending output from top to other programs or to a file.
            In this mode, top will not accept input and runs until the
            iterations limit you've set with the '-n' command-line
            option or until killed.
