We are ISP and I'm using Icinga 1.0.2 on a single server monitoring almost 
1000 hosts and 
1600 services on them/on the network and works just fine, but we are using 
only Linux hosts, no Windows and other platforms.
I've used Nagios for a long time and I decided to use Icinga because of 
PgSQL support and I plan to use this 
backend instead of writing cfg files by hand or by some Perl script.

I use the hosts group only and I group them according to the city where 
they belong, anything else does not make sense to me.
