Be sure to check out http://perfbase.tigris.org, which is a
Python/PostgreSQL toolkit for exactly this purpose. It saves you the
nightmare of managing, analysing and visualizing experiment data this
crude, manual way.

I use it (and designed, write and maintain it) for 5 years now,
currently with application to my job in the financial sector. My
database currently has some 400GB of data in it.  Release 1.2.0 was
just released yesterday, which included parallized queries to speed
them up.
