Network traffic and NAT

We are installing scanner appliances within our company network and we are concerned about the network traffic it will generate. May you please inform how much traffic do the scanner appliance generate in an aggrssive option profile scan? Also, I'd like to know what is the typical amount of traffic in a typical scan.


Another question:we need to monitor several networks those are protected by firewalls These networks are all connected to another network where the scanner appliances are going to be installed. The IP addresses in the outer networks are, sometimes, going to be translated (NAT), since some networks do use repeated private IP addresses. Is this going to be a problem? If so, how may the problem be solved?


Thank you very much!
