MaxMemoryStorage Property of ASPForm class

Property | Member of  ScriptUtils.ASPForm | Changes | Purchase | Download


Maximum size of source data stored in memory.
- Source data with size less than MaxMemoryStorage are stored in memory.
- Data are stored in Temp folder (ScriptUtils.ASPForm.TempPath) if the source data size exceeds this value.


vMaxMemoryStorage = ASPForm.MaxMemoryStorage
ASPForm.MaxMemoryStorage = vMaxMemoryStorage




Special values:
1. 0 (zero) means that whole data are stored on the disk. 2. Default value is &H20000 bytes (128kB).

      You should not to increase this value - there are usually no significant performance differences between store temporary data in memory or disk - because consumed resources to store files on server side are less than consumed resources to read data from client.
      Store uploadded temporary data to a disk is a main performance/security idea for upload. This is a great feature against ASP.Net default upload control (HTMLInputFile). HTMLInputFile from ASPNet takes around 5MB of memory to upload 1MB file. You will need at least 500 MB of a free memory if you have 10 client uploading one 10MB file with ASPNet HTMLInputForm upload control. HugeASP upload takes 1MB (one megabyte) of memory to do same action (and 100MB disk size to store temporary data, of course).


Upload - Store up to 1MB data in memory

'Sample file Form-MaxMemory.asp 

Server.ScriptTimeout = 5000

'Create upload form
Dim Form: Set Form = Server.CreateObject("ScriptUtils.ASPForm")

'Set maximum memory storage to 1MB 
Form.MaxMemoryStorage = &H100000

'was the Form successfully received?
If Form.State = 0 Then
  Form.Files.Save "e:\upload"
  Response.Write "<br>n of Items:" & Form.Items.Count
  Response.Write "<br>n of Fields:" & Form.Fields.Count
  Response.Write "<br>n of Files:" & Form.Files.Count
  Response.Write "<br>" & vbCrLf
  Response.Write "<br>Form.MaxMemoryStorage:" & Form.MaxMemoryStorage
End If'Form.State = 0 then

<br>sample For <A Href=>HugeASP upload</A>

<form name="file_upload" method="POST" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" >
<input Name=SourceFile1 Type=File>
