I'm not sure what you mean by that.

/mnt/datagrid1/blkbrd3/phase4_ds75/data/MergeFilter/output/test2.txt  |
xargs -n 999999 | zcat -f
its not  working in a way it has to do.

Do you really mean

xargs zcat -f <

or something else?  We can't tell from your question what you are
trying to achieve.

How to defien max arguments ? for xargs

With -n.   Or maybe -s, depending on what you mean.

Can you please provide  me  a small example.

There are some examples in the documentation.   Did they help?
