Max request size?

Hey guys. Is there a maximum request size that ES can handle?

HTTP wise, there is a limit of 100mb (you can change it using the http.max_content_length setting). Otherwise, there isn't, but, be careful not to overload the server.

Awesome. Thanks, Shay.

Can this setting be updated dynamically? It doesn't look that way:

$ curl -XPUT localhost:9200/_cluster/settings -d '{

"persistent" : {
    "http.max_content_length": "1200mb"
}

}'

$ curl -XGET localhost:9200/_cluster/settings?pretty=1
{
"persistent" : { },
"transient" : { }

  }
}

}
}

Try setting it in transient instead of persistent.

Persistent settings are usually read from the config file only.

@mark thanks for the suggestion, I hadn't thought of that. Same results, no dice.
