Not sure what you mean by dinky hosts, nor why you're deprecating ntp and ftp,
especially since you have no idea of the environment you're dismissing.
Keeping 1000 servers within a second of each other is an important job here,
as is the corporate ftp service. BTW we're not using nagios.
Our mail system serves 13,000 internal users, handles about 10 million
messages/month, and has a very effective spam quarantine management system. If
that's dinky, I'd love to hear about your deployments.
Our dns serves 750+ domains (times 6 views) and I clocked one of boxes doing
28,000 queries per second, with very low load average. If that's dinky, please
tell me all about your awesome deployments.
I'm also eager to hear your criticism of why nis/nfs and rsync services are
dinky and unimportant, so please dive in!
