This is one of (many) reasons why a number of people have been converting to a streaming telemetry model of getting data out of devices. You can send it to a relay host and visualize in your favorite magic (eg: grafana w/ influx or some other storage).

The box is at its limit and increasing its capacity will be nearly impossible. We mainly use Nagios and Cacti to monitor our network. Going forward I was thinking of setting up a few hosts whose job would be to simply relay SNMP traffic. This way moving forward we could hard code several IP's and bounce all traffic through one of these IP's.
