Response size limitation


#1

Is there any size limitation on response payload size. Looks like there is nothing as of now [Kong Response Size Limiter Plugin Dev]. So is that possible to stream the payload response that are in and around 1GB. Or Would it cause the 504 Gateway timeout


#2

Should be able to proxy such a large responses in theory at very low volume. But I would not recommend REST API’s as the avenue for transporting massive files as I have seen stability concerns across many API driven middleware layers attempting to do so (MQ/SFTP/Kafka may be a better solution). Which is why I am creating this plugin to keep such massive responses out of our gateway :slight_smile: .
