I've done that.  Also wrote scripts to yank out of the MASSIVE record
what I was looking for.  That was years ago.  If you enable process
accounting, I recommend setting the partition you are writing to
appropriately and check soonest - the thing got REAL big FAST.

It sounds though that what you are after is called "process accounting".
This has been available for linux, solaris, and other OSes for some time.
I haven't personally needed it, so I can't really help with any details

accounting for your specific OS should get you started.
