Agreed.  I had problems with the poller taking too long to process
our 1200 datasources but quickly resolved it by increasing the
number of poller processes that could run at once, from the default
1 up to 4.  My 6.1-release machine (2 cpus, plenty of ram) never
breaks a sweat polling those hosts and processing the results.
