how to set the maximum number of clients per SSID(not per AP)

I have 2 Question.

I have a guest network. And I want to limit the no. of users of that particular ssid in whole wifi network, let say limit max. 500 clients for Guest SSID.

I find that there is a setting "Allow only up to 100 clients per AP radio to associate with this WLAN"
I am not sure it means?
A: 100 clients * 1 SSID * 10 APs * 2 radio(2.4GHz+5GHz) = up to 2000 clients
B: 100 clients * 1 SSID * 2 radio(2.4GHz+5GHz) = up to 200 clients(no matter how many AP)
or both wrong.

That limit  applies per AP not the WLAN. [I'm referring to a ZD environment.]

There is no maximum configurable number per WLAN (with the exception of your example 1).
Your limit is the hardware in your environment and will be modified for instance by ACL MAC address space allocation (if using) or type of encryption (impacts back on hardware though really).

Then why is Max clients per AP set in the WLAN config and not the AP config?

No limitation of clients per SSID will cause overcrowd. Will Ruckus consider a maximum number setting for this?
