    Is there any restriction on the number of characters can be passed by SPS? If yes, can it be changed?


    Thanks in Advance,

    The Apache included with SPS has a default limit of ~8k characters for request URLs, and can be increased via the LimitRequestLine directive.


    The web agent has a default request URL limit of 4096B.  This can be adjusted via the web agent's MaxURLSize ACO parameter:


    Specifies the maximum size (in bytes) of a URL that a Web Agent can handle. Because different web servers have different limitations on URL length, check the documentation from your web server vendor before setting this parameter.

    Default: 4096 B
