Sooner or later MODx must support large docs tree and dirs (30.000 plus). This days 5000 docs is nothing.
If you’re trying to do an ecommerce or db-driven site incorrectly, yes, 5,000 is nothing.
If you’re not trying to make singular pages for every single thing, you’ll do fine. I work at UT, and our College of Ed. is converting their site to MODx 0.9.6.1, and we’ve had little-to-no problems. Our siteCache is at around 378k right now (we’ve got in about 560 pages, 1/5th or so of the total content), and runs smoothly on a test server that’s only a G4 running OS X. I can’t imagine how fast it will run when it hits the real servers.
All that said, 0.9.7 puts forth some real improvements in this area, both PHP-side and UI-side. Also, with the introduction of Contexts, it will prove quite easy to isolate sections of your sites into simply manageable parts.
If you’re running at 250,000 docs (or honestly anything more than 2,500), I do have to ask what you’re doing. It sounds to me like you should be writing some real app dev code to handle things, rather than trying to fit it all into a CMS. MODx is great - but it doesn’t replace true application development, yet.
