Sounds reasonable to me.
I work for a university and we are now generating 500+ gigs of system logs a day (600 servers, a few hundred switches, firewalls, apps, etc, etc).
It wouldn't surprise me if over half of that growth is just in the last 10 years or so. 20 years of EOD data is smaller then 1 year of 60 second ticks.
I am curious,
Do you boot all your machines from the network share instead of from the local disk? What software do you use to monitor all the machines health, Nagios, etc?
