A little-known feature is that the SmartView Monitor does have some historical reporting capabilities; these were covered on pages 464-466 of the latest edition of my Max Power book. However these historical reports may have limited data unless you have set these checkboxes on the gateway/cluster object (they aren't enabled by default):

Many of the Traffic and System Counters reports have historically-based reports available, it is just a matter of creating a custom report query to see them since real-time mode is the default.
