Efficient streaming of very large API payloads with low memory usage

DataPower API Gateway provides streaming to handle very large payloads (Giga bytes).

Currently streaming only improves latency, but does not limit memory consumption.

We need efficient streaming of very large API payloads using limited buffers in memory only, as it is not feasible to load the full payload into memory.

    Apologies for the length of time this idea has been in the review status. In API Gateway with streaming we aim to reduce the memory footprint.

    In streaming mode, the API Gateway passes message payloads through without parsing and the API Gateway does not buffer the entire payload of a message into the memory. However this can only occur in limited situations as documented and highly dependent on the process.

    Would you be willing to open a support case and share your sample API via support case to be triaged?

    In the IDEA FAQ i found the following statement:

    How quickly will I hear back from IBM once I’ve submitted an idea?We try to get back to all submissions within 30 days and our goal is to give you a decision within 90 days. The product management team may contact you to ask for additional information or feedback as we refine your idea.

    So what is the current status of my IDEA, which I created 2 month ago?
