I would have to echo the sentiment that storing this information in
the database is probably a better idea.

I just wanted to add that if you would like more statistics reporting
for this purpose, I'll be happy to add that to sbuild.  Currently we
only really report build time and disc space.  If you want additional
data such as number of cores used, memory/swap usage and other resource
usage, I'll be happy to add them to the sbuild summary stats.  Actually
measuring those might be a bit trickier though, especially on machines
running parallel builds.
