Re: Maximum size limitation of Diego apps' routes

Hi Maggie,

That's an unusual number of routes for a single app. Could you explain the
use case please, so we can attempt to think of other solutions to the

We have one application with over 200 routes and one application with over

But those applications can’t run in Diego container due to the maximum
size limitation of 4KB as mentioned in

Diego imposes a 4KB limit on the maximum size of an application's routes.
While this doesn't translate to a specific number of routes, as it would
depend on how many characters are in each routes, we are estimating that
gives you space for 40 to 50 medium sized (50 character) routes. If you
have too many routes bound to your application, you'll see the error *Runner
error: desire app failed: 503.* In some cases you can work around this
by using a wildcard route (i.e. * instead of mapping
individual routes. When that is not possible, the only other option is to
run multiple applications mapping 40 to 50 routes to each application.

Apparently wildcard is not an option and we don’t want to split
applications just because we can’t add more routes. Is there any other
solution? And would anyone help to explain why this limitation is
necessary? I don’t remember same issue existed in DEA.
