One little known but powerful feature of using sqlite as a data store is 
the "attach" function.  If you have other sqlite files, such as a sqlite 
file containing the applications you have on your hosts you can do join 
the tables from the two separate sqlite files and create a result that 
tells you something like the total memory usage for a given application 
instead of just the hosts themselves.  Alternatively, if you have a 
database of host categories such as location or sla, you can see uptimes 
per sla or network throughput per location, or failures per model.
