Default Plotting contour length over time steps

Rotidpor is on a distinguished road

I'm doing multiphase simulations and analyzing data in Paraview 5.9.

I'm using the following tree :
-Integrate Variables

This tree can give me the contour length at a given time step.

Would it be possible to plot this contour length over time ? Or at least get a column file with contour length for all time steps ?
If it can't be done easily in Paraview, can it be done in openFoam with some functions ?

Edit : OK, I have found the filter plot data over time where contour length should be available. Only problem is that it takes a lot of memory and you can't chose the data before processing all time steps...
Edit 2 : OK, processing time steps takes huge loads of memory but I can process through 2000 time steps in like an hour or so, so it's doable. Will be much longer for million cell meshes...

Edit 3 : To get your data in a line/column file :
-Integrate variables
-Plot data over time (cell data)
-Extract time steps
And then just export the spreadsheet
