Limitation on number of audiences RRS feed

Answers

  • If I recall correctly - in 2007 there was a limit of 10,000 with a recomendation of max 500 audiences per farm.

    I can't ever remember seeing a limit in 2010,  but given its a property of the user profile service (and an architecture can support more than 1 UPS service instance and a corresponding UPA service application) and you can run the audience compiler more than once in a day, your limit is having enough time to complete the compilation schedules, and also that cannot run while profile synchronisation occurs.  Hence, I'm not aware of a hard and fast limit - but there is an impact to having too many setup.

  • I know of no limits on Audiences, I can't see there being one.

    Good luck,
