ADL: ga_num_evals

I'm trying to dock rather flexible ligands (number of torsions ~ 15).  
I understand that I have to use a large number of ga_num_evals (>25  

My question is the following, if let's say, one sets ga_num_evals =  
40 000 000 by what extent should  ga_num_generations (default = 27  
000) be increased?

I quote from the UserGuide

"the run terminates if either limit is reached (“ga_num_evals” and  
“ga_num_generations” respectively)."

Many thanks in advance
