my site, which has been developed by someone else, is not able to display configurable products that have more than 2500 simple products associated to it
is there a limitation of the number of simple products that can be associated to a configurable product? The developer says that any browser can't handle records more than ~2500 as after server delivers all the records to end users browser, browser has to render it and this is why it is not displaying
the reason for the large number of simple product associations is that my site allows users to configure their product as per the screen shot below
look forward to your feedback
That doesn't seem to be correct, there shouldn't be a limit for the number of simple products associated with a configurable product.
However, I haven't associated a configurable product with more than 2500 simple products yet, so I will share this post on Slack and Twitter to see if another member of the community can share his/her opinion about it.
thanks for the response and update :-)
I should have also mentioned that I have a couple of configurable products that have up to 10,000 simple products associated to it, however the majority are much lower
Once you have product that has 4 arms options x 4 base options x 15 upholstery options, etc. the number of products adds up
I haven't hear magento limit for the number of simple products associated with a configurable product. But there are some reason effect to it like limit in PHP or server config if you don't mind I can help you debug without money.
Let me know if any.
thank you for your reply and also for your willingness to help debug...very much appreciated
I will be back in touch once I have had a few more replies and discussed with my current developer - if they are not able to assist, I will need all the help can get

We have a similar situation but with even higher numbers and are currently working on our own lightweight configurable product type.
The rough concept:
This is just to give you an idea that for a use case like yours you will need a customized solution.
