When you are operating a monitoring system like Cacti you will need to find a balance between how much data you want to store and how much resources you want to allocate to your system.
As of cacti, 1.x cacti support remote polling which allows you to have multiple servers act as pollers the remote pollers send the data to the main server that holds the graphs
this is a great solution for load balancing as well as the ability to have local pollers at remote locations to help with things like latency metrics.
Updating Cacti can be easy or tricky depending on your system size and design.
