The number that enclave can reside in memory simultaneously?

I wonder how many enclaves can exist simultaneously.

I have read the developer reference, which says:

  • Depending on the memory footprint of each enclave, use cases suggest that 5-20 enclaves can reside in memory simultaneously.

Why? How the number 5-20 is calculated?

Is this true that the enclave number can be infinity as long as the memory is big enough?

Thank!!

Hi Chen.

There are quite a few other questions/discussions about SGX memory allocation, but the one below is probably best to help answer your question:
