The load on a correctly-configured NTP server is often very much less
people imagine. I'm running an NTP server on a very old computer with a
60 megahertz (sic) CPU; it's serving about 60 NTP clients. The CPU load
is less than 2 percent. Using a modern computer, the amount of time
the CPU spends servicing NTP requests will be negligible, unless your
configuration has tens of thousands of clients. The NTP contribution to
and Ethernet I/O traffic is also very small.
