[smokeping-users] historical tracking of mtr/traceroute reports

Does anyone know of something existing that could be used to track  
historically mtr/traceroute runs to correlate to badness seen in  
smokeping?  I have Smokeping monitoring  connectivity between many  
datacenters with master/slave. It proves helpful diagnosing problems  
(often postmortem) and ruling the network in or out of the root cause  
of a problem. Being able to see runs of mtr during the problem would  
prove very helpful to netops though to see if there were routing  

What I'd like to get (or create) is something that keeps a history of  
the mtr/traceroute and be available for correlating to badness seen in  
smokeping/FPing graphs. I thought I would check to see if anyone knew  
of something existing before I go off on my own. I'll be the first to  
admit I have no idea yet how this data would be represented in a UI  
and integrated into smokeping UI.

Thanks for any suggestions.
