Max number of subfolders per node

What is the max number of subfolders per node? We use OpenCMIS java client to connect to Alfresco to manage our documents. Due to certain requirements, we need to make the folder structure relatively flat. I am wondering what it is the max number of folders at the same level. We could reach 10K folders. Will it be bad for performance? Our environment is Alfresc 3.4

Hi,

What i have learnt is that under any node, there should be between 1000 to 2000 folders for best performance. I also hope it applies to all alfresco versions.

Regards.

Yeah, large number of nodes in a single space is a suicide.
If you need something like that, brake it of in sub-spaces based on some criteria, for example, created date.

What is the performance impact if we have many hierarchical folders instead of flat? I mean using the CMIS compatible queries.

Re: Max number of subfolders per node

Hi,

As per my latest findings, the rule of thumb of having content items between 1000 to 2000 per folder is not updated as alfresco share UI directly calls db queries to get content items & folder lists.

Can anyone confirm same & provide new matrix?

Regards.
