How do you trace a request across processes? Do you need some id
tagging of the messages etc?
Normal gen_server call like requests would probably work, but what

and down the layers freely and a request after travelling down the
layers is e.g. answered by a response from outside the system, which
makes the top layer function call finally return. Is it possible to
trace requests like these without instrumenting all layers and/or the
