I've got some questions on your setup:

Why do you use multiple instances?
We use 4 different collectd instances but on different servers, to
do load-balancing using hash groups. This was necessary to leave I/O hell.
The tricky part was to have the GUI transparently allow distributed access
across these.

Also, what's your server's (apparently expensive) hardware?

Now you've got me really interested.
Does your software support multiple collectd servers?

Thanks for sharing!
