Hi Matt,

as Andrew covered the technical aspects and pointed out solutions, I just want to clarify:

In your original mail, you sounded as you were assuming that the environment variable EPICS_CA_MAX_ARRAY_BYTES was introduced with the intention of limiting the size of arrays that CA is able to handle.

My statement was: No, it was the other way round. The limitation had been there from the beginning. The environment variable was introduced with the intention to overcome this limitation and allow CA to handle larger arrays.

Sorry for being not clear enough in the first place.

Cheers,
Ralph

Hi Matt,

nope, it's the other way round:

Maybe I'm still not understanding completely because I don't see much difference between your explanation and what I said,
