    There is no inherent limit in JMeter itself -- theoretically it 
could run any number of threads.  But of course there are practical 
limits.  These depend on your system, the workload you are running, the 
JVM, and a number of other factors.  The changes made after the JMeter 
1.8.1 release to reduce memory consumption should also allow JMeter to 
run a larger number of threads, so you may also see an improvement by 
using a nightly build instead of the released version.

    Sorry I can't give you a more specific answer -- there are so many 
factors involved that it is nearly impossible to be specific.  Perhaps 
others can give some examples of what they've been able to achieve in 
the past.
