Capacity Planning for MOSS 2007

For a fresh MOSS Administrator like me, it's very important to know the maximum capacity of sharepoint objects like lists, libraries, pages, sites, users etc and to get the optimum performance benefit upto these limits. Limits that are used over here are can be used to design a portal or a farm to get the best out of MOSS 2007 and crossing this limit may cause MOSS 2007 to create performance bottlenecks:

Site collections (Database scope) : 50000

Web sites (Web site scope)  : 2000

Web sites (Site collection) : 250000 (Nested Subsites)

Documents (Folder scope) : 2000

Documents (Library scope) : 2 million (Nested Folders)

Users ( Web site scope) : 2 million

Items (List scope) : 2000

Web Parts (Page scope)  : 100

Web Part personalization (Page scope) : 10000

Document size (File scope) : 50 MB  (2 GB if WSS SP1 is applied)
