If you find anything that is really good at this, please post the info. 
  I'm trying to do it with OpenNMS, but the problem is that the trends I 
want to track are always across load balanced/fail over sets of things 
and the aggregation needs to be done at each sample interval to get it 
right (i.e. if you fail over between two routers you can't add the peak 
usage of both over a longer interval and call it a trend). I've ended up 
exporting most of the data out to other tools for trend analysis.
