Is anyone clustering VoIPMonitor? Geographically diverse networks with probes reporting up to a single front end?

Jumping on the VoIPmonitor bandwagon here; they've been more responsive than the average vendor to new feature requests. A memorable interaction went something like this:

Voxox: "We'd like voipmon to do X." (e.g. process RTCP-XR and SIP PUBLISH reports from Polycom, or analyze a proprietary codec)

VoIPMon: "We've had that on our roadmap for a while. Now that a customer (you) has requested X it will be moved to the top of our todo list. We're having a meeting today about upcoming priorities, and will follow up with you tomorrow with a timeline for the feature"

Hard to beat that.
