Maximum Resource Pool size before performance issues

I've heard that you don't want all resouces in a single resouce pool because it will cause a performance issue. Does anyone know the maximum number of users you should have in a resource pool to ensure that you don't have a performance hit?

Re: Maximum Resource Pool size before performance issues

Right now, we are using the recommended setting of 250 from the SysAdm Guide:

RM_MAX_RESOURCE_IN_POOL

Determines the maximum number of
resources in a resource pool. If the
number of resources exceeds this
value, some features are unavailable
on the Resource Pool overview page.
The View Resource Load button is
not available if the number of
resources in that resource pool (or its
hierarchy if the â Include children
resource pools when calculating load
for this resource poolâ flag is selected)
exceeds the value set for this
parameter.
The View Forecasted Demand and
Manage Pool Capacity button are
also unavailable if the number of
resources in the resource pool
exceeds the default. However, you
can still use the Resource page
Manage Participation feature to add or
remove resources.
Values greater than the default (250)
may increase response times and
memory footprint when the above
operations are performed.

Default: 250
