SNMP and syslog forwarders

Hi,

It's looking like running all of our traps and syslog through a couple 
of relay devices (and then onwards to the various NMS's) would be quite 
a win for us.

These relay devices just need to be "dumb" forwarders (we don't require 
any filtering or storing, just reflection), but we need an HA pair 
(across two sites) without creating duplicates.

I have the coding skills to make this myself, but as coding skills come 
and go in our network team, we are looking for a commerical product so 
it will continnue to work after I get:  hit by a bus / amnesia / visions 
of grandeur.

Any recommendations / experience? This needs to scale to ~1,500 devices.

Thanks,

Sam
