Hi I am using CSLA 188.8.131.52 in a multi tier application which uses WCF in IIS 6. The WCFconfig uses the standard 'wsHttpBinding' binding with no compression.
Recently whilst testing a new app I started seeing strange exceptions whenever the remote client attempted to save data to the app server. I traced the issue down to the default 8MB limit that IIS placec on transfers.
The remote client was actually parsing some csv and xml files to create a list of dirty objects, so it was fairly easy to creat a large set of dirty objects. I was able to work around the problem by breaking up the upload into several smaller chunks, I noticed something that has raised my curiosity.
I never saw issues when retreiving data from the app server, even though the retrieved data contained exactly the same objects that weretoo large to save (upload). Using Fidler I saw that the size of the uploaded data (dirty objects) was around 10x the size of the retrieved (downloaded) data (I undid the chunking for the tests).
Is there a reason for this discrepancy in size?
Is there any safe way to reduce the upload size?
