Technically the limit is very high (around 2 billion). However, in practice, the limit depends on the performance, system resources, and implementation (e.g. on the number of entries in graphs / rows in data tables). As such it isn't really possible to name a precise number.

I figured that was the case. I just needed confirmation.
