elobrate your first point ( what method you are look for, etc) 

try using the database_history_node (id, set)

in smp run it outputs nodeout which has following header with time stamp 

 nodal point  x-disp     y-disp      z-disp      x-vel       y-vel       z-vel      x-accl      y-accl      z-accl      x-coor      y-coor      z-coor

in mpp run it will be output in binout you can also check the elout database 

cheers, ram
