[mrtg] Sun Performance Question

Ok all you Solaris guys, I'm trying to compare my Compaq dual 800 Intel
box running Redhat9 to the Sun Enterprise 220R/420R, dual 450's with
Solaris9.  Both have 2Gb RAM running MRTG 2.9.17 polling 164 Cisco
devices.  The Redhat box is able to complete its poll in the 5 minute
window.... the Solaris box can't seem to get it done within 10 minutes.
We all here expected the Solaris box to beat out the Intel but that's
not what we are seeing.
This test was in hopes of consolidating our THREE Intel boxes to this
one Sparc. What type of Sun Sparc hardware should be required to run
MRTG polling 400 devices??
Thanks for your replies!
