My database has millions of nodes. We've been approved to delete a very large amount of them given certain criteria so I set up a view with VBO to handle the batch deletions. I've exposed the pager limit setting in Views so I can run batches of different sizes. When I try to run anything higher than 1000 nodes per batch (10 per run to prevent timeouts), the batch sets its max value to some number around 1000, depending on the server. This is limiting me to run either 1000 at a time or attempt to run the entire result set.
I'm looking for any ideas as to why there is this seemingly self imposed limit on the bulk operations. My sandbox server sets the batch max at 1001 while my production server sets it to 995.
