[SunHELP] Guidelines on the number of sysadmins need to support a server.

Kind of an open ended question.

Right now I look after 50 servers. I used to be on a project with 2 
admins who looked after 600-700 servers.

So it depends. I don't think there is a magical ratio. It depends on the 
admins, how good they are, etc.
