Hi all,

I'm dealing with an application where the main semantic entity (equivalent to a topic) will take on several hundreds, maybe a couple thousand values.
The current design calls for topic per entity.
Is running hundreds, possibly low thousands of topics a sensible thing to do?
If not, is there a canonical multiplexing technique?

Thank you kindly,
