How many vpn sessions does ASA 5545-X support

Dear friend,

To assign proper site-to-site vpn sessions to a class, or in other words, to configure 'limit-resource vpn other ...', I am wondering how many vpn sessions does ASA 5545-X support. I was not able to find it from 'Cisco ASA 5500 and ASA 5500-X Series Next Generation Firewalls for the Internet Edge Data Sheet'

The following are 'show version', and 'show inventory' from the device.
