Default [dm-devel] Maximum table size / oom

Hi,

Is there a maximum table size for the device mapper? Or put in other
words, what is the relation between table size and memory usage? It
probably depends on the target, but is there an estimate for the linear
and the crypt targets? And what's the performance impact of having big
tables?

I tried to set up a device with a lot (about 3000) crypt targets, and
this was obviously way too much as the oom-killer kicked in.

Please cc me on your reply as I am not subscribed.

Thanks,
Michael
