I would suggest you stagger your jobs over the 5 minutes interval
instead of trying to do everything at exactly every 5 minutes. Try
0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * do 1/5th of the job
Ensure your 1/5th job finishes with 1 minute
1250 RRDs - are you storing indiviudal DS in its own RRD. Say you
collect ifInOctets, ifOutOctets for router1/router2/router3. You may be
creating 6 RRDs where you can do with 3 in a logical way. Simply create
router1.rrd with DS ifInOctets and ifOutOctets. This will definitely cut
down the number of RRDs
