How many databases can you mirror per instance?

I configured mirroring for 33 databases in an instance. Recently the mirroring failed and I found many network related errors like:

- Database mirroring connection error 4 '64(The specified network name is no longer available.)
- The Security System detected an authentication error for the server MSSQLSvc/servername:port.  The failure code from authentication protocol Kerberos was "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.

Mirroring timeout for each database is either 10 or 30 seconds.

Check whether you have max_worker_threads configured to handle your Mirroring load and do check this excellent article.

can we relate the 2 errors related to resources overload? or they're just caused by network hiccups..

>> The specified network name is no longer available.
>> There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.

Both errors can occur due to network connectivity issues or system not able to process requests ( load) on those servers at that particular point of time..
Is it happening regularly or rarely..
if it is happening rarely, then its definitely related to network issue.
Else you need to concentrate on the max_worker_threads to efficiently use your resources.
