Does anyone have any experience of how NetBSD behaves if there are
about 30000 accounts on one machine? We need a system with 30000+
accounts on it (the users won't log on, but they will receive e-mail
into their mail boxes and read it using POP3).
How well do the passwd routines survive a load like this? What is
the maximum UID - is it 32767 or 65535? If 32767, it's probably too
Yeah, I'm involved in all kinds of weird and sick things :-I
