Max number of column families?

Hi there,

I am new to CockroachDB, while I am reading the docs on column families, I wonder, is there is theoretical/suggested limit on the max number of column families in a table, before performance degradation? For example, in Bigtable, it is suggested to have less than 100 column families.


Hi! This isn’t the area that I work on, but I am pretty sure there is no code-enforced limit. However, I would certainly recommend staying under 100 column families.
