Maximum Size for 2D Variables ...

is there a maximum number of cells defined that are allowed per process?
I do have a few data sets that have variables that contain more than 100 million cells per level. I can open the data and see the bounding box, but when switching to surface rendering, some parts are missing. It seems that the cutoff is about 100 mio cells. When interacting, ParaView is downsampling the data, then the entire mesh in lower resolution is visible. If I use several servers, and keep the number of cells per process below 100 million cells, it works too.
