Hi,  I have been using a software called Observium (opensource) for traffic reports/graphing.   
Its based on mysql, rrd and perl, php

The guys who built it faced the same problem with discovery as Nedi,  many objects to discover in a short time.
They come up with a wrapper,   

With a 4xcpu x86  server on ubuntu I can get all data for 1000 objects in 5 min, 
with a 2xcpu  Xenon server on ubuntu I do 300-400 objects in 5 min.

Maybe this wrapper could be a insperation to speed up discovery.

I think their focus is different than that of NeDi. They, like Cacti focus on graphing, I think. NeDi on the other hand is intended to quietly crawl the network and build the topology in the background. It generates long-time graphs as a side effect :)

I've been looking at threaded discoveries, but it's gonna be a completely different beast...
