    Hi Satriaji , there are no equivalent settings within Local Traffic Manager but rather they can be found in Application Security Manager or AWAF.

    client_max_body_size  (awaf setting – file uploads max size)

    client_body_buffer_size (awaf setting – advanced config -> System Variables -> request_buffer_size)

    client_body_timeout and client_header_timeout (awaf setting - advanced config -> System Variables -> slow_transaction_timeout) Note: we can do idle timeouts with Fasthttp profiles but not standard http profiles.

    These are our default profile timeouts.  The standard http profile will make it so a (tcp) connection to the backend will not occur until it has a fully rfc compliant http request from the client so it does offer some native protection from slow http type attacks.

    Good article on mitigating slow post if that’s a primary concern here.
