I've found (and fixed) another reason for being slow: 
Vivaldi was running a busy polling updatedb in one of its chroots. For some
reason an upgrade triggered the start of cron in the caml chroot and was
pulling CPU power away from the buildd, which runs at a lower priority. 
Christian found another problem with two parallel started buildds, which not
only causes CPU wasted time, but as well build failures. See the other
thread for this.

Well, someone could use the database on Buildd.Net to generate such a graph.
I assume that the "total" number reflects the number of source packages.
Combined with the number of changes in Needs-Build it might be possible to
get the wanted data out of the existing data. Otherwise you'll need to track
*-all.txt for changes to state Needs-Build and look for new packages/newly
uploaded source packages.
I'll put that on the Buildd.Net ToDo list...
