Perhaps, I was a bit too quick to answer. We don't use Mnesia "in all 
its glory".
For example,  we don't do Mnesia backups. We are using Mnesia to store 
data, spread out over a distributed cluster of machines. The "backup" of 
the config data
is done manually by the operator, and is dumped into an (XML) config 
file.  No traffic
generated data is stored on the machine(s) (apart from some volatile 
statistics).  Instead,
it is possible to enable Radius Accounting, which logs such info to an 
external Radius
Accounting server.
