Tracers register themselves in ZooKeepers and the client tracing 
libraries know to look in ZooKeeper to find them. You as a user 
shouldn't have to worry about it -- it should happen automagically for you.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "[tables that have been recently 
traced]". You can look at the "Recent Traces" page on the monitor to get 
a list of the traces in the last X minutes.

Many operations going on in Accumulo will be getting traced. If you have 
an active system, you'll constantly see new traces for minor compactions 
and major compactions.
