Cytoscape node limit

Wanted to check if cytosacpe can handle displaying ~10 million nodes with ability to zoom and pan. Essentially, I wanted to build a VLSI layout viewer which typically would have 5-10 million placed rectangles (cells) that I was thinking of modelling as nodes in cytosacpe. Thanks for the support.

Did anyone figured out on this?

Hi @wowwwn,

I guess the only way to find out is to try. what works for.someone else might not work for you. If you don’t want to put a lot of effort in validation/POC just generate a random dataset and some different styles (in the way you anticipate to use it) and measure the performance hit when multiplying the numbers.
