I want to try to understand where does erlang spend time and CPU running my

What do I try to do for it:

1) run erlang:statistics(reductions)  before loop
2) run erlang:trace(all, true, [running])
3) start collecting messages
For each

{trace,Pid,in,_} and {trace,Pid,out,_}

I take process_info(Pid, reductions)  and remember first seen reduction
count from process and update last seen reduction count from process
4) after some time passes I stop this collection and sum all seen deltas
between first seen reduction count and last seen reduction count for all

5) when I compare sum of reduction delta  and numbers from
statistics(reduction) I see that during 5 seconds sum is 152 242 208  and
statistics is 802 940 107

Here is my code:

Why do I see such difference?

Where do I loose reduction count in processes?
