Boundary Process CPU Plugin

Displays CPU usage (%) for specific processes. Uses regular expressions to specify a process name, process full path, and/or the process current working directory. As above, currently only works for Linux based systems that support procfs (i.e. have a /proc directory). Note: to monitor processes with elevated priviledges requires running the meter as root, which is not recommended.
