We are using MRTG and we have been happy with MRTG. We want to find out
how much MRTG can scale to. I want to understand the following.

1. How many routers we can poll with polling frequency of 5 minutes.
Roughly, if you have done any experiment that would be great. Lets
assume on average 3 interface for each device.

2. If the polling doesn't finish by 5 minutes, when cron tries to start
the second mrtg what happens.

3. How CPU intensive is mrtg.

4. How can we scale it to poll more routers in the given polling

I would really appreciate your response about these questions.
