net_traffic probe using lots of CPU

All,

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?

Thanks

Frazier
