Hi Andras,

At the moment the limits are not well explored. There is a known `hard'
limit around 1GB RVM data, as this has to be mapped as an anonymous
mapping in the process's virtual memory space. At the moment this
approximately translates into a 50GB Coda server or a 10GB Coda client
cache. However, the practical limit is probably lower.

AFAIK, this limit largely depends on the the amount of real memory vs.
swap space in the machine in question.
