I have several questions about linux groups
- Is there a limit to the number of groups a user can create?
- Is there a limit to the total number of groups in a system?
- Is there a limit to the number of groups a user may be a member of?
- Do large numbers of groups (and users as well) degrade performance? Will 1000 users with 1000 groups each be substantially slower than 1 user and no groups (discluding system generated users/groups)
I'm trying to come up with a website that bridges the gap between SQL user databses and actual linux users.
