Greatest number of pages in a single space?

Just trying to get a sense of scale:

  • Is there any upper-bound on the number of pages a single space can contain?
  • Even if the code does not impose limits, any practical limits you've seen in your spaces? Performance hits when browsing or searching, for example?
  • How large is the largest space you've used or seen?

At my company which is a large Corporation one department has a space with 8,200 pages of content. It does take about 10 seconds to navigate to the space but other than that no real impact.

My largest client has roughly the numbers below. The biggest space has about 700 active pages in it, but only 100-ish of them are "real" - the others are small chunks of documentation that are "included" in other places.

Total Spaces 1050
Global Spaces 600
Personal Spaces 450
Content (All Versions) 415,000
Content (Current Versions) 60,000

Our site, running Confluence v2.10.2 (for the next few weeks at least) several spaces with over 2,000 pages each. Largest one has about 5,000 pages. With our documented "Wiki Best Practices" and some hand-crafting of custom menus to allow for quick navigation through the space, they whiz right along.

Note - our custom menu solution will most likely become obsolete once we upgrade to Confluence v3.5.x, as the Intranet and Documentation themes are quite nice for large spaces.
