Sure but those won't have 32 NICs. So if we go the way one file per NIC.
We might have 3800 files for 3000 VMs. (800 VMs with 2 Nics so they have
1600 files and the rest with just one nic)

Updating those works pretty good even on IDE and even without rrdcached.
It generates nearly no load at all just 10% I/O Wait. But running so
many VMs shouldn't be done on IDE anyway.
