I wonder whether the knee in the load/impact curve isn't
beyond the range of your test setup.
I noticed a significant change in disk IO (at least as
shown by CPU IO-wait figures) on migration from native to
RRD mode. The move was made under some pressure, as disk
interference was causing trouble to the nightly backup run.
Consequently, recording the number of targets and devices was
not a high priority. That said, our network hasn't doubled in
size in half a year, so today's figures of 785 devices
and 10756 targets give an idea of the scale.
