If there's enough processing power and time available:

1) calculate start and end times in seconds-since-epoch format
2) scan each log file; for each line with a time stamp inbetween the
   two values derived from step 1: add up the value found in column 2.
   Do the same with column 3.  Write the result to a file
3) sort the file (numeric mode)
4) "head -5" and "tail -5" provide the information you need
