If you're talking about the built-in Erlang distribution mechanisms --
FWIW: in a quick test I did a while ago I had trouble keeping stable
connections for more than ~80 connected nodes. I must admit I was a bit
surprised as the "Efficiency Guide" seems to imply that the number
should be much higher (?).
Possibly the number of known (but not connected) nodes can be higher
