Given an API for a work-queue: add_job take_job, it wouldn't be too hard to write a database-backed version to use as default, and a 'real' queue-based version to grow with... would it?

Just picking an example, RabbitMQ seems to be capable of many thousands of messages/second. ActiveMQ also.

(disclaimer: I haven't ever looked at the poller task tables in any detail, OR the complexities of reliable work-queues in MQ systems - it just seems like a good idea not to reimplement this kind of middleware functionality in a database as things grow)
Weathermap 0.98a is out! & QuickTree 1.0. Superlinks is over there now (and built-in to Cacti 1.x).
Some Other Cacti tweaks, including strip-graphs, icons and snmp/netflow stuff.
(Let me know if you have UK DevOps or Network Ops opportunities, too!)
