People object Guidelines for acceptable performance Notes Users in groups 2 million per Web site You can add millions of people to your Web site by using Microsoft Windows security groups to manage security instead of using individual users. User profile 5 million per farm This number represents the number of profiles which can be imported from a directory service, such as Active Directory, into the people profile store. Security principal 2,000 per Web site The size of the access control list is limited to a few thousand security principals (users and groups in the Web site).
