Not in my experience using FreeBSD 4.x...

The system I do this on today will be getting an upgrade, so the issue
will be mitigated I hope :)

cactid does GREAT on a small number of polls, but seems to *skip* or
*drop* readings on higher than ~1500 polls in my experience.

The normal PHP poller handles the 1800+ polls without issue, just
takes 2-3x longer (and still reasonable).
