Canister size >5mb


I would like to know if it is possible to upload canister bigger then 5mb? Currently when trying
Request is too big. Max allowed size in bytes is: 5242880


I guess you have to wait for the NNS canisters to grow beyond the current bound; that’s usually when the system limit gets bumped :wink:

There’s a way for up to 10 megabytes. (by chunking it and deploying via a canister)

fyi: If your canister is written in rust you can run it though ic-cdk-optimizer and it will size down the bundle

That’s a bummer. I wanted to create canister with 1gb size :). So the only way to have 1gb size is to send assets after canister creation?

For the time being, yes
