Feed pmacct output, which classifies and totals and thereby
reduces data volume, to a database or even a file
and then run queries against the db. Or feed it to a
time-series circular db, like rrdtool etc., through your
own filter that analyzes, so you never have to delete old data.
In the latter case the pmacct in-memory method can be
good choice on the pmacct side. Or use a db that
supports triggers to do the analysis on input
into the db. Etc. Whatever works.
