ACL Limits within ACE Context

I am wondering if there is a way to determine (approximate) the number of ACL's I can

have on an ACE within a context (I think I am stating this properly).  I am working with hosting

company to virtualize some services/servers.  When we applied our ACL's to the FW (assuming this is the ACE Context)

I was told we are exceeding the allocated acl_memory.

not sure why min is 274K and max is zero ?

25 ACL's with maybe 300 (ace's) within them. mostly implicit allow statements (outbound)

with maybe 10 ACL's on the inbound and only a few dozen (ace's) within those rules

some groups.

I did not think that it was all that much (maybe I am wrong?)

From the screenshot I was forwarded


Any insight would be helpful ?  Thanks everyone -A
