I'd do something like that in two separate steps:
  The microcontroller would collect the data.
  A separate job on a real computer would occasionally grab the data.

I'm assuming we are discussing some sort of long running project.  The real 
computer has a bigger disk and some sort of backup/archiving setup so I'd 
want to get the data there anyway.  Once it's there graphics isn't a problem.
