Like use a system call or command to know what is running on each of the cpus 0..n-1 (assuming n cpus in the system). Output could be like tuple (pid, cpu_no).

I'm not sure it would be terribly useful. You know what is running on at
least one of the processors - your snapshot tool. So for uniprocessor its
100% useless, for dual processor 50% useless.

It would also be incredibly expensive to serialize everything on the
system just to take a measurement.
