There are ring buffer routines rb_xxx for distributed event analysis, but this is
currently only implemented in the front-end framework. These routines are pretty
simple, and their integration into the analyzer should not be very difficult.
Unfortunately I don't have time for that right now. We do our analysis such that we
analyze four different runs in parallel on a quadcore machine.
