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.

A bout of research a few years back turned up IBM Aurora
(, now sold as Tivoli/Netcool
as a potential solution for high performance analysis, but IIRC, a
fairly hefty price tag applied based on traffic volume.  Looking at the
second URL, it is not clear, but looks like $10K + $200 per "resource
unit", whatever that maps out to be.  Definitely not on the same level
as the typical solutions.
