Does anyone know what the maximum amount of queues I can create is? I've look around on AWS and can't seem to find the answer. I might have almost 50 different queues at the end of this project and want to make sure I am not running out of runway...

There is no limit for the number of queues and for the number of messages in a queue.

I don't see any mention of a limit. But 50 is small. You should be fine. To confirm, just create 50 queues.

I don't know of any limit. We're currently running about 45 queues and I'm sure we hit the 50 queue limit a while ago.
