If you search the archives you will find that this has been discussed
a few times in the past.
The server itself can only handle one simultaneous task - but it
generally does that very quickly. How that translates into
supportable number of clients depends on a lot of variables - but I
believe there are installations serving many tens of thousands of
clients in use, and for smaller installations the service tends to be
run as a 'background task' rather than on a dedicated server as it's
overhead is quite low.
Do you have any specific requirements in mind ?
