Hi Ashwin,

There are no artificial limitations on the amount of concurrent
read/write requests the Neo4j kernel can handle. In general, a read
operation doesn't block other reads and write operation will acquire a
write lock for every resource it mutates. That write lock will block
other writing requests but allow concurrent read requests to read the
old value.

So the actual upper limit on number of concurrent operations will be
set by the JVM / OS and how much contention your access patterns will
lead to on your data set.
