How many components are recommended as a maximum for a single CCM instance?

We are trying to learn when you have a lot of SCM artifacts when it is appropriate to create a new CCM instance. Our CCM repository is growing rapidly due to SCM artifacts and we did not begin with multiple CCM instances or with CCM clustering. We use WebDAV to house larger SCM files, so we are not asking for this recommendation.

We have looked all over for documents in jazz.net and the deployment wiki on sizing/performance and the information for CCM is quite old. There is one helpful document:


Specifically, we are looking for this information:

1. How many components are recommended as a maximum for a single CCM instance?
--> We can see that no more than 2500 components are recommended for one stream (and no more than 100,000 files/folders per component).

2. How many components are recommended as a maximum for a single CCM project area? 

We know that streams are lightweight objects, so we are not concerned about the number of streams. It is more about the number of files/folders. While we appreciate it is hard to estimate this kind of thing, at some point someone needs to make hard decisions to cluster or add extra CCM instances.

We were able to find links such as these, but they only treat the issue indirectly. We would much appreciate any information / advice that you could provide.

 There are no stated limits to the number of components in a CCM instance or the number of components in a project area. There are so many factors involved that it is hard to come up with a general answer to the question.
