I'm looking for the ballpark limitations for deploying MySQL 5.0 or 5.1 on 64-bit RedHat 2.6.18-194.el5 with 4G of memory, with decent speed SAN storage. Lets assume I've configured the OS & mysql correctly. Here are the categories I'm interested in:
- max database size
- max table size
- max concurrent users
- max G/hour mysqldump backup
- max G/hour mysqldump restore
- max OLTP transaction volume

This will partially answer the maximum number of connections question (4096) however that is in an ideal world.  If each connection is consuming sufficient resources which is related to the complexity of the TSQL it could be far less.

Disk I/O will directly affect the performance for backup/restore plus load while those events are occurring.

I haven't worked with OLTP on MySQL so I cannot answer that one.
