    Client or Server DB


    I am the application developer for a company that makes a network device (called box hereafter). The box currently spits out huge amounts of network statistics in real time. Now, I need to save this date in a DB and allow for nice looking reports to be created.
    I'm not sure whether I should keep the DB on the box (closer to the source gathering data) or on the remote client (closer to the user manipulating the data). Any suggestions, things I should look out for. Literature? Links?
    PS: Huge amounts of data means 10.000 'longs' per second.

    One of the concerns you ought to have while considering to place the DB on the box are the chances of the box's security being "compromised".
