     Sorry about that. (Too jittery this morning)

     I was to confirm that Cacti (Lookup CactiEZ for quick testing) + 
Threshold plugin has been working for well over 6 months in our test lab.

     The site has over 18,000 thresholds and that on a single clunker, 
un-optimized it takes about 1m to process.

     We mainly placed threshold on Environment reading, Traffic 
High/Low, Discards and other Errors on each ports.

     You should check Cacti licensing, I think it is still GPL.
