Time limitation of recording is the reason why we don't use tracepoint.
In some situations, the exception is caused by a series of transactions
interaction.
Some abnormal transactions may be pending for a long time ago, they
could not be recorded due to buffer limited.
Therefore, it is difficult to dig out the root causes which caused by
the earlier transactions occurred.

Another point is that we'd just like to record the abnormal
transactions.
But most of transactions are less than 2 seconds, these are not the key
point we need to focus on.

Frankie
