Maximum request size limits

The following application properties enforce maximum limits on the size of processed message.


Maximum number of headers in a request (default is 1024 headers).


Maximum total size of the headers in a request (default is one megabyte).


Maximum size of a form submitted via an HTTP POST and processed by getform(). The default is ten megabytes, which is the total encoded size of the form; which will be slightly larger than the raw data encoded in the form.

The size of file uploads does not count toward this limit. The write functor for uploaded files is responsible for enforcing its own size limits. However, the rest of the form that includes file uploads is subject to this limit.


<form enctype="multipart/form-data">s that submit file uploads usually have a larger encoding overhead then non-uploading regular froms.
