Best practices for Statistics and Events

We run a Notes infrastructure with 16 servers and 1000 users. I would like to use Statistics and Events for more proactive monitoring of the system. Are there any "best practices" in using Statistics and Events? For example, does the collect task ask much of server performance? At what kind of server should you run this task? Thanks in advance!
The collect task doesn't take much in processing power. As long as you set up your event monitoring/statistic monitoring to collect no more than every four to six hours, you will be fine. I usually have statistic collection run every eight or 12 hours. That is normally enough to have reasonable stat collection. I normally run collect on either a hub (natural choice) or on a light load server. It doesn't matter much, though.
