I may still not understand exactly what you're trying to do. But if you want to keep track of a max value for each time/database at the same time that you're keeping a total for the purpose of averaging, you could do something like this inside your while() loop:

$h{$ddhh }{$database}{total} += $speed; $m{$ddhhmm}{$database}{total} += $speed; $h{$ddhh }{$database}{max} = max(($h{$ddmm}{$database}{max} || 0), + $speed); $m{$ddhhmm}{$database}{max} = max(($h{$ddmm}{$database}{max} || 0), + $speed);

You can use the max() function from List::Util or write your own. Now later in the code where you used to access the total speed with $h{$timestamp}{$database}, you'll change that to access it as $h{$timestamp}{$database}{total}. And that makes room to keep track of the maximum value for each one in $h{$timestamp}{$database}{max}. Make sense?
