One of our developers is requesting that the ASP buffer size be increased on our servers.  The run Windows Server 2003 with IIS 6.0.  We have clients trying to export from Crystal Reports a 198-page report into Excel and the current buffer size is apparently insufficient.  We have it documented how to make the change from the default settings.  What I hope to get answered here is what the best-practices would be in making this change.  What is the downside to making it too large?  Are there any recommendations on how large we should make the buffer?

Hello

Buffer is a temporary memory slot which gets allocated to a web request when it hits the server. The size of buffer can be defined based on various factors like size of the traffic at website, size of data being processed for each web request etc.

If your site is not attracting lot of traffic, increasing buffer size as desired is not an issue.
