I suspect you might be better doing your own data collection as I'm not sure how well Cacti handles lots of high-frequency collection tasks - I have a fair number of RRDs where I collect the data externally but graph it in Cacti.

It depends on the polling interval. It is known, that people go down to 10 sec.
interval, 1min intervals are used frequently and 5 min being the default.
Using the "spine" poller, it is possible to collect data from many thousand data
sources (we do collect about 100,000 in about 70 sec; some scripts among them
lasting 40-45 sec alone)
