If you work glance in char mode, just type the 'p' for print toggle. Then you will be asked, whether you want to print continously or whatsoever. Follow these question and you should get, what you want. I use it on our machines to log performance issues and show them to my boss, if necessary. If you want to extract something from these files, you can use the grep command to create statistics.

Take a look at the man pages for 'glance', too. In addition to interactively toggling printing to a file, as Alexander notes above, you can start glance with output redirected to a file; you can capture (to a file) only the "adviser" (alert) messages; and you can customize the alarm definition and capture those instances.

If you see a number in glance and want to get the metric name and defination, hit the h key (help), then select "Current Screen Metrics", then select the label the number is under (highlight and hit return to select). You can get adviser information in glance also by hitting the h key, and selecting Adviser Information. One thing to remember is that global metrics can be referenced anywhere, but metrics that have multiple instances (like PROC_CPU_TOTAL_UTIL) must be referenced inside the appropriate loop (process loop in this case).
