Available heap memory is really the only limit. Try

$ JVMFLAGS=-D-Xmx<mem in gig>g bin/zkServer.sh


$ sudo jmap -heap <jvm pid>

will give you some insight into whether it was set correctly or not
(ie MaxHeapSize)

The most I've tried is 5 million znodes with 25 million watches (using
zkpython, but zkperl should be fine). iirc that was 8gig heap, but
ymmv depending on data size.

You may also need to tune the GC at some point (would suggest turning
on cms and parallel collector) to limit stop the world pauses.
