I've been thinking about building a library interposer (in the spirit of
will track malloc / realloc / calloc by script line (pull the top frame
out of g_frame_stack) and script file; I envision using SIGUSR1 and
SIGUSR2 to dump and clear gathered statistics, respectively.
I tried to do something similar with systemtap, but I wasn't able to
keep bro running fast enough to process nontrivial volumes of live
traffic. Haven't tried dtrace yet.
If this sounds like something that'd be useful here, I can inject it
into the top of the TODO.
