Here's a quick couple of things I would contribute to your problem:

* Stick with 2.0, it scales *much* better for a large number of services 
on a single Nagios host
* Use check_icmp rather than check_ping, again it's much faster and more

This is the wrong list, nagios-users would get your question to a lot 
more people, this is the list for *developers* of Nagios.
