I think you'll have to qualify that with hardware type etc. As for the
6.x driver versions, so far, no instability, except when in beta, was
noticed. My DBs are 1TB and greater and we load very much data into them
every day. Few hundred MB/day. Some get's reconciled away somewhere and
some is trash which is later disposed of, but they never stop loading.
It's a pretty High load I'd say, could be higher though.
