Unstable communication when using large number of nodes / topics

Currently we are working with an 11 man team on a research project where we use ROS electric to control a large number of devices in a grid of multiple robot systems.

For this project we are trying to benchmark the amount of nodes and topics that could be used with a single ROS core. So far we noticed that depending on the design (we tried several) the system becomes unstable / unreliable if we use (for example) over 50 topics.

We are quite new using ROS and are trying to determine if ROS topics could be used as a middleware solution when using multiple robots run on a single ROS core with a large amount of nodes and topics.

Does anyone have any experience using ROS with large amount of nodes / topics?

Are there any benchmark results available?
