Are there any limits to the use of tagging on confluence pages or attachments?

We are in the process of determining our knowledge management approach.

We are using tagging extensively on content (content=pages and attachments). Principly, because we can establish many-to-many relationships between content easily. In somecases an item may have 10 tags even more. We do this to drive dynamic page content through "Content By Label" macros and to remove content redundancy.

If we have hundreds (or even several thousands) of pages in a space and each page is tagged 10 or even 20 times, how will the system perform?

Does anyone have any experince of when use of tagging starts to degrade or how one might avoid perfomance degradation?

What did the developers intend to be the limits of tagging usage when the product was designed?

There is a limit to how many labels a page can have. It currently set to 500. I'm not sure what the limit for attachments is, but it is probably the same. As for performance you should not have any issues.

Did this answer your question?

Ok I understand the design limit. I was looking for answers and experience from other users also.

Confluence is designed to handle that kind of data. We have thousands of pages in multiple spaces that are also labeled multiple times and have seem no impact.
