Number of Services on an AGS site

I will post a general question here:
How many Services do you have published on your ArcGIS Server and how are the administrative performances (like publishing a new Service) holding up?

I have about 450 Services. Starting a new Service seems to be slowing down. I have heard from other groups that it starts slowing  down after around 500 Services.

I have all Services set to 0 minimum instances and there is very little usage of the Services.

BTW - we are currently using ArcGIS Server 10.2 on Linux with two machines, both assigned to the default cluster on the same site.
