Overview: Long Requests

WAF includes special handling for long requests. The default maximum size for a long request is 10MB. If you have applications that expect to receive longer requests or receive errors from WAF regarding long requests, contact your F5 support engineer. F5 will advise you on how to adjust global parameters designed for handling of long requests according to application and designated resources.

After adjusting long-requests related parameters, the WAF enforcer engine must be restarted for the change to take effect. You can set an automatic shutdown flag to handle this.
