How can I aggregate all Apache HTTPD processes' CPU time usage to be able to compare them with other running processes' (MySQL, Java, ...)? Or how much CPU time does HTTPD needs compared to MySQL for example?

"ps --cumulative", "top -S", "pidstat -T CHILD" does not help because cumulated cpu times only include exited child processes' time, and httpd processes are living quite long.

Is there an existing utility for this or I have to make one?
