Hi, 

I am trying to find a definitive answer on maximum file size for asset in the DAM. Is there a limit on how large a file can be? We have a number of 360degree, 3D videos which are very large. 

Also wanted to know if there is a maximum limit for all assets overall, or is it infinite except for the fact that having a large repository will slow things down?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

According to https://docs.adobe.com/docs/ja/aem/6-2/administer/content/assets/best-practices-for-assets/assets-si...

and https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/author/assets/managing-assets-touch-ui.html

the file size limit seems to be 2 GB. The latter page also explains how to set the sizeLimit attribute (was able to upload upto 10GB from browser by increasing the sizeLimit)  (/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/fileupload), 

the 2GB limit is imposed by the browser.  Additionally In order to add a larger file, it can be done through AEM Desktop also

Thanks

Hi,

Technically there is no limit & able to configure the limit. SHould not be performance issue & make sure enough disk space available.  However the client reading the assets might have an limitation & cause performance issue.
