Hello,
I've been asked if there is a maximum size for the SRC URL of a
esi:include. Our developers want to send parameters to the backend via
"http get", thus appending ?foo=bar&......... to the ESI SRC.

So I want to know if that gets truncated by varnish at some length. I know
that the http server on the backend may truncate the request, too.

rgds,
derjohn

Comment:

There are no known ESI specific limits, so I'm not sure what you want us
to document?

Comment:

There are no limits in the ESI code, but obviously you may need
backend_workspace (-trunk, worker_workspace <= 3.0x) to hold the URL while
it is requested etc.
