Yes, actually that part would be great and we should have requested that at
the gsoc level.
That kind of tutorial would be much more about influxdb rather than
buildbot though cause really, this is all about pushing the data to
influxdb, and then you have all the bower of influxdb's ecosystem.

Looks like there is none alas. I had to hack one or two endpoints in my own
old eight instance.

The other solution is to look directly at the db.
Would be easier if you had your data in mysql, but you my still want to dig
your data out of the sqlite (on the backup file, right?)
