net_traffic probe using lots of CPU

I have a prospect that is interested in seeing the total amount of traffic being sent and received from their network.  They decided to try the net_traffic probe (and it gives them what they want to see), but when they turned it on it started using 50% of 8 cpus.  It is looking at 8 gb interfaces funneled into one, but should it be using that much cpu?


Also, is there any other probe that would give us total traffic sent and received across multiple devices?
