I have couple of website and all of them have sitemap.xml file but i write only categories there not all pages that i have. Total 14 pages. I saw my friends sitemap.xml file and he has like 25 000 record in the xml file. I cant event open sitemap file thru firefox. it is freezed. Is it ok to have that many link inside sitemap? I have like 1000 pages, should i put all pages inside to sitemap?

I thought if i put only category pages into sitemap, google will follow links and index all other pages under the category but it doesnt do that, it indexes some of them. Not all of them. It's been 2-3 weeks and still some pages are not indexed.

xml sitemap files can contain up to 50,000 urls or be a maximum of 10MB file size. As long as you don't cross either of those thresholds you should be okay.
