And isn't there something like 'nice' that is capable to reduce disk access 
of one process? That would be definetly the best.

Beside the pure router functionality the machine provides some other basic 
stuff like bind, apache (just for some custom cgi scripts to control the 
machine by browser), postfix and fetchmail (for automatic mail exchange when 
internet connection established) etc.
This all produces a high grade of dependencies, so I don't think I can reduce 
the amount of packages that much.

I already did that. Delayed the jobs by some minutes, running cron.daily 
every 3rd instead of every day and so on, but that isn't really a solution.
