This is the type of info I was looking for.  Right now on my old PIII 800MHz system 
it takes ~ 12 minutes to poll ~10,000 ports.  I also keep the cfgs broken up by 
network device.

BTW, that was 10,000 active ports, off hand if I included all our ports, whether up 
or down, the number would probably double.  This may actually occur because there is 
conversation about turning on all ports on the Cat's, putting the unused one in an 
unrouted LAN.  This would allow someone to move into an office, connect system to 
wall jack, using DHCP they'd end up with an IP in the private LAN, goto registration 
website to get routable IP.  Once registered the VLAN info would be updated on the 
switch within X minutes and voila they'd be on the net.

When this occurs obviously everything is going to be admin up, sigh.
