What is the recommended number of issues a single JIRA instance should have, without affecting the performance of the JIRA instance?

We are using version JIRA 4.4.4, our instance currently houses 452201 issues. To give more details below is the database statistics for our instance.

- Issues 452201
- Projects 1153
- Custom Fields 832
- Workflows 112
- Attachments 201782
- Comments 748127
- Users 15369
- Groups 5890

We currently reboot & reindex our JIRA servers weekely. The re-indexing process takes about 5-6 hours to complete.

Is there any recommended number of issues fro a single JIRA instance, witout affecting the performance of the JIRA instance?
Also, do we need to take any special provision/maintainance considering the size of the JIRA instance.

Regards
Imtiyaz
