Not to pick nits, but what I quoted was a cache snapshot; caches
don't impact performance under normal circumstances, though their
construction may do so.

Yes ... but you shouldn't need anything special for that.  We have
been doing the same for a long time, using regular IP accounting on
the edge routers, which is then summarised over a full routing table.
The only discrepancies that occur are if changes in routing occur
between the time of accounting and processing, but this tends not to
be a problem.

This used to be true, but "probably" isn't true any longer.
