Been running nSight for a little over a year now with data purge after 13 months. We have 3 agents at remote offices with each inspecting the traffic of around 700-900 hosts. It's been quite helpful. We *had* a ton of P2P traffic in our networks.
When we started out last year, we tried to host all 3 agents on a low end HP blade (with a laptop hd). After about 2 months it became very slow (mostly due to disk IO). We upgraded to a faster blade with fast SCSI disk and it's been flying along ever since.
