Hi Anthony

As far as I know, the maximum data size is related to the amount of text
that needs to be indexed, and this is in gigabytes.
If collections end up close to this size, splitting them into two
subcollections and cross collection searching them works fine.

I'm sure you will be fine with your data (assuming your documents are
not extremely large :-) ) Our best advice is to try and see.

Greenstone is easy to install, and as a trial you can just put all your
documents into a collection and build it, so it doesn't take much effort
to test :-)

Regards,
Katherine Don
