We use MARS, however we only use it around untrusted networks (internet, B2B, etc). Management wanted the smallest box possible even though we fought for a larger box so we could send more info to it. Part of your question is curious to me, "manage every port in your network". Can you elaborate what you mean by that?
We're kinda of in the Health Care industry, we do claims processing for providers.
I don't think it's possible to get a box that is too big. If you'll be dumping syslogs from EVERY device in your network, make sure you properly size it. If you're sending netflow, account for that as well. Feel free to ask any other questions.
