Their marketing lit mentions "analyze multiple variables on a
second-by-second bases". This thing monitors everything from MIB-II
stuff to enterprise stuff. Their approach is that they think they have
to monitor at this fast rate to detect changes in the network.

We own this product, but have not deployed it like this. When we did use
it we disabled all of these out of the box rules and used it to poll at
5 minutes. Since then we have had them develop a new poller for us.
