What is the maximum size that the gateway can handle when accepting a data file intake? (in other words, the maximum payload size that the gateway can accept and handle at one time)
I'm not sure what you mean with intake bud maybe have a look at the proxy controll settings (at the bottom) there are max amount of data per connection defined, which you can override.
I am not sure what file you are talking about
I am just trying to figure out what the is largest file size that the gateway can accept and process at one time. For example, let's say a user submits a file to the gateway. What is the largest file size it can be without having any problems with the session dropping or erroring.
what do you mean with: "submits a file to the gateway"?
the default settings for one connection is time: 24h and amount: 10240 MB (see proxy control settings)
it also depends on the filesize and amount you are scanning if the system can handle it in a timely manner, so the total system load.
sometimes i see that Microsoft ISO with more than 3GB are downloaded and scanned without problems on our MWG
theoretically the filesize is limited by the cache/opt filesystem which for cache is ext2/3, so max. filesize is 2TB (depending the blocksize https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext2 )
