[erlang-questions] capturing all traces in a running system

Has anyone tried to capture all traces in a running system for later analysis?

What kind of performance impact does trace collection have on a running system, particularly if traces are shipped over TCP to a non-Erlang server?

It seems that it should be possible to reconstruct the behavior of a running system by logging what module started what process and by capturing all traces for offline analysis.

Has this been tried before?

	Thanks, Joel
