Hey Luke,
argus-3.0.8.x should handle up to 64 interface instances, so you should not have any interface limits.
The argus mailing list comment was from 2001, so we’ve come a bit down the path since then.

Just load the interfaces you want to monitor into your /etc/argus.conf file as ARGUS_INTERFACEs.
BUT, if you do have any issues, send the actual complaint from argus, or its behavior so we can figure out what’s up.
Hope all is most excellent,

I've found reference to a 3 interface limit by default (http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.network.argus/1611 <http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.network.argus/1611>) but can't find where I can manipulate this during compile.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?
