We were reviewing the maxRequestLength parameter in web.config file for MonoX and it seems to be set abnormally high:

<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="1550000".../>

My understanding is that the value is in KB, which pegs that number at around 1.5 GB.  Any reason it is set so high?  Could we safely reduce it?

Thank you for any feedback.

yes you can safely reduce the value, MonoX has this value set that high because some users want to upload very large videos or similar files and that's why we have left the value of around 1.5GB.
