Given the sheer volume of data that is flowing in the tubes, I would 
suggest that this would be much like looking for a particular cup of 
water in the Great Lakes.
And that any investigation or analysis would have to be executed on an 
exception basis as opposed to continuous.

That said, to be able to look at the 'fragments of data' means that a 
copy of the data would have to be stored somewhere and someway.
Or that they have a means to be able to determine what data would been 
available to the Heartbleed security breach.

Yes.

Again, see above re: cup of water but this time, in the Grand River.

BTW: I think I recall seeing a post in this thread that said that an 
attack using the Heartbleed security breach was not traceable, did not 
leave fingerprints and thus could not be detected.
