Would like to use a 6 MB .xlsx file for a Data Driven response

Have a business requirement to use a .xlsx file that is approximately 6 MB in size with a data driven virtual service.

As per the documentation this you will incur performance issues if the following are greater than these values with both Excel files and CSV files as the data set. Excel files can scale to about 3 MB. CSV files can scale to about 15 MB.

Is there any suggestions on how a 6 MB dataset can be used with a data driven virtual service?




All support DevTest releases.


At this time you cannot use an Excel dataset larger than 3MB with DevTest without it causing an issue.

If you have a 3MB dataset you would only be able to convert it to a CSV file and make sure is does not go over 15 MB.

I suggest you open a suggestion for a feature enhancement on the DevTest Communities website.

Additional Information

Refer to section "Performance Tuning of Data-Driven Virtual Services" in the documentation of the DevTest release you are running.
