host.deny limitations

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

I am doing alot of blocking using host.deny file. Currently I have around 10,000 entries there.

Server is Dual Quad Core i5 16gb ram on SSD drives. Load is still very low + server is 90-95% idle with 0 wait.

Is there a limit to the amount of entries I can put there before server performance is affected?
