collectl runs locally on each linux box you want to monitor so a MAC 
wouldn't do you any good.  my philosophy is to collect data locally and 
not over the network.  I have seen too many times when there were were 
network issues and you needed accurate data the most and having to rely 
on the network to report the data would result in data loss.
