Gets or sets the maximum size, in bytes, for a message that can be received on a channel configured with this binding.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
The size of the messages that can be received on the wire by services using the BasicHttpBinding is bounded by the amount of memory allocated for each message. This bound on message size is intended to limit exposure to DoS-style attacks.
For streamed transports (TransferMode set to Streamed), only the SOAP headers must be buffered to generate the message. The body can be streamed in on-demand. In this case, MaxBufferSize is less than or equal to , where bounds the size of the overall message (headers and body) and MaxBufferSize bounds the size of the SOAP headers.
The following example sets to 1,000,000 bytes.
The value of this property can also be set in the configuration file.
