Re: [tkined] SNMP to SQL (was: High volume SNMP poller)

I have a few questions that fit nicely in this thread:

- What are the database schemas you are using? Are they derived from
  polled MIB tables or are they more generic?

- How to you represent the polling time and the "context" (e.g. SNMP
  agent address) in your database?

- How compact is the data actually stored on disk (e.g. 100000 polls
  of variables xyz take m MByte of disk space)?

- How do you make the polling engine reliable, e.g. do you fire up a
  new poller every once in a while or do you rely on the poller being
  reliable and able to actually handle all error situations?
