Application Load Balancer payload limit?


Hello, I was curious what the maximum payload ammount is for an application load balancer? For example, what is the size limit that an ALB will allow a json request body to be for an HTTP post call. Is 100MB the limit?

i've checked for quotas but I'm not seeing payload listed.

The max payload that ALB can handle will be a function of sum(request size + response size) x number of requests per minute. Higher the payload size lesser will be your number of requests that ALB can handle. There are more factors involved like HTTP vs HTTPS and also, whether backend connections are persistent or not. It will be best to open a support case and get ELB/ALB team to give a concrete answer.
