Lets see.  Dual p3-500.  512M RAM.  OpenNMS brought the box to its *knees*.

I got rid of OpenNMS, and now the machine does:

- MRTG (w/RRDtool) for over 250 switch ports
- Nagios (v1.1) for system/service monitoring
- Power line quality monitoring (using NUT)
- Datacenter machine room environmental monitoring (with a WeatherDuck)

I'd have it doing more, but I ran out of serial ports.
