What is the limit for an XML feed

Hi

I have written an XML feed for others to access my data.

If I run the feed from a-k and l-z both smaller feeds work.

But when I run whole file I just get a 500 error with no details.  Or it just hangs.

I assume this is because the amount of data is too large.

Is this adjustable, and where can I increase it?  I assume its in my IIS 7.5 setup?

Thanks Terry

There is no XML file size limit; but you are limited by how much memory (RAM) is available. If it's taking too long to load, the file is too big. You might try to use a long XML reader like SAX for .NET (http://saxdotnet.sourceforge.net/).

Hi Serena

When you say more RAM, do you mean on server or requester?

Hi Serena

 When you say more RAM, do you mean on our server?

Hi Serena

I have doubled the memory on my server, but it has made no difference.

Are there any settings in IIS?

thanks Terry

I re-wrote the XML feed and all works now.

I still do not know if it is a limitation of memory of what?
