You need to write clearer questions about the limits. Since openldap
can be distributed on multiple servers, there aren't *any* hard limits. Depending
on the database engine and filesystem, that can affect the limits per node,
but if you have 500 openldap servers, you could easily handle many more
entries than if you only have one old 486/66 machine with a 200Mb hard drive.

If you are referring to "on a single server", even then, these limits depend on
your hardware, your OS, your choice in backends.

I recommend that you instead create sample data sets, and test those
yourself, to see what choices will accomodate your data set.
