You can take a look at some of the NetBSD-specific "plugins" to
the munin system monitor, which does a number of the above
things.  It's in pkgsrc under sysutils/munin-node/.

As for the source code of top in NetBSD, it's in src/usr.bin/top,
and should be readily available via e.g. or via
any of the other "get the NetBSD source" methods.
