We have about 1500 nodes in our database, of which about
100 are snmp capable. The traffic on the Netview interface
(100FD ethernet) never shows higher then .05%. We poll
every 5 minutes and are collecting interface utilization
percentages on 34 router ports every 10 minutes.

I believe the reason you haven't had a reply up to now is
that the traffic from a management station is entirely
dependent on what you are monitoring and what info you're
collecting. The bigger the network and the more information
you want, the more traffic generated.
