Hi dagsters - when creating assets and loading them into dagster via a definitions.py file, how many is too many? can we have 500 assets? I know we can (i am doing it) -- but what is the recommendation? Should I find a way to consolidate functionality from X assets into 1 asset in order to reduce the 500 down to something smaller?

for people with large dbt projects, it's not uncommon to have a couple thousand assets if you want to kick off runs that include all of those assets, it will make the run UI sluggish if all the assets are computed in the same way, you might consider using partitions compress them into a single asset: https://github.com/dagster-io/dagster/discussions/12061
