Yes my experience was the same on with Manage Engine.  Although, they do have an article buried in their archives that shows how to tweak the mysql and java memory settings on start of the app.  We found that helped a bit.  We were successfully using it for netflows from more than 100Mbps, so I would say it can handle a bit more than typical SMB traffic.

I don't know if anyone mentioned it, but a good commercial product a former customer of mine used to use was Solarwinds Orion.

Manage Engine flow receiver with no user sessions viewing statistics
runs at 100% CPU for 200+ Mbps unsampled traffic. It's suited to SMBs
