With the rrdtool backend, you can certainly define and add multiple
sources from different files together. Using 'AREA' first and
subsequently 'STACK' to view multiple data sources is particularly
nice for visualization.
Otherwise, the RRDs and Statistics::Descriptive libraries in Perl can
probably go a long way towards what you might be wanting for reporting.
