 There is no limit in the BF agent code.  It will create new processes until it consumes all the resources on the system.  Process control is left to the user.

If this question refers to use on unix using inetd or xinetd, note that those super-server daemons have options in their configuration files that allow limiting the number of daemons launched or the rate at which they are launched.  

As Spencer says, there is nothing in the agent code itself that limits resource use.  It was designed to be used with a super server controlling resources.
