Regarding xtab file limit for NFS exports

Hello,

I would like to know the limit of xtab file entry.

[ENVIRONMENT]
RHEL 3

[SITUATION]
I know that IP address is registered at /var/log/nfs/xtab if we execute exportfs command.
If we register unit of network segment, many IP address is registered in it.

[QUESTION]
- Is there any limitation for NFS export at xtab ? For example, 256, so on.
We would like to perform export with NFS for several network segment.

Thank you for advice.
Best Regards.

There is no such limit as i know. But i have not done the export to more than 256 clients in a practical scenario.
