Do you mean how many connections can it open and use, or what rate of connections can it open/use/close?
For the latter I've sustained rates of about 10,000 per second (per client). I had to recycle TIME_WAIT to do that (otherwise the client will quickly run out of ports). More information is available in the following paper:
M. Arlitt and C. Williamson, "Understanding Web server configuration issues", Software Practice and Experience, Vol. 34, pp. 163-186, 2004.
If you don't want to recycle TIME_WAIT, you can calculate the rate that can be sustained.

Subject: [httperf] httperf (concurrent) max-connections possible ?
Is there any performance data concerning how many concurrent TCP connections httperf can sustain ?
Of course this depends on HW platform, OS, etc.
Any relevant data would be greatly appreciated.
