NBStat lookup in ASP and WScript

Can a bottleneck occur when performing multiple NBStat lookups?

I recently started a new job and my first project involved an Intranet site written in classic ASP. I came across a function that performs an NBStat using WScript.Shell object. This is used on the home page of a high traffic site, on several pages that get hit with 800-900 users during shift changes, and in a very poorly designed "page hit" routine.

I know they're many factors involved such as server load, memory, network traffic, etc. (Win 2003 on VMWare), but would NBStat be a bottleneck if 200 users logged on at once? 500? 800? Is there a limit?

WScript isn't something I've had much experience with so if this isn't the best way then I'm open for suggestions. I'll be glad to post the code if it helps.

Thanks in advance.
