comment Postfix performance
There shouldn't be any reason to try and reduce the amount of logging, as long as you have syslog logging asynchronously and (preferably) have the logs and spool on different spindles. Do make sure you're not doing any verbose logging for normal operation, though.

comment What tools should every sysadmin use that no one's heard of?
Not necessarily. It's no particular bash love, but more the good-enough-and-ubiquitous factor that keeps me on bash. Personally, I think of ksh as a good scripting shell but not a great interactive shell. I know you can technically do programmable completion in ksh, but it's icky compared to bash or zsh completion, and there's no ksh equivalent to the bash-completion project that I know of. (Oh, and you can set -o vi in bash too, you know).

comment Hidden Features of Solaris/OpenSolaris
pkill (and pgrep and the other p-utilities) are part of the core system package on (Open)Solaris. They're (at least pkill/pgrep/pmap) in procps on Linux.

I dunno, "export PAGER=less" works well enough for me. And you're better off with pkill than killall on Solaris. You're right about the sucky termcap/terminfo stuff tho (no terminfo for screen? GTFO!).

comment What solutions exist to allow the use of revision control for server configuration files?
Yes, but you should also revision-control your Puppet/CFengine configs. I'm also a fan of revision-controlling the output so that you can answer the question "what was the config on date x?" as well as "what should the config have been according to puppet?", and correlate inputs with outputs for troubleshooting the config management system.
