That's exactly what I'm after. How do people do this? How is this done  
on the big Ericsson projects?

Also, what's a "busy port" in erlang:monitor parlance?

Last but not least, I wish there was a way to keep track of message  
queue length using erlang:monitor.

In my particular case, I get "player timeouts" under a certain load.  
This happens because a message from a player does not get to the game  
before a timer expires.

I'm trying to answer a simple question: why does it happen?
