That's mostly a matter of habit and ease-of-use; my NANOG subscription
so far outlasts my previous three employments. ;)
SMARTS scalability? Thousands and thousands of ports monitored... from
what I recall from certain documentation, 2,000 ports is `good', 5,000
is `doable' and 25,000 is `too many' (for a single installation).

Yes, the course that I mentioned I followed in my earlier mail was
together with one of your colleagues... there were experienced and very
clueful people from Cable & Wireless UK, COLT, Interoute and GlidePath
(me) at that training. All of these companies are actively using SMARTS
and broadening the scope of their implementation.
