 I have a user trying to download a very large ERDDAP dataset to MATLAB format, unfortunately we are running in t a file size limit :
Error { code=413; message="Payload Too Large: Your query produced too much data. Try to request less data. [memory] 3755 MB is more than the .mat 2 GB limit."; }
I was wondering you you have any insights into a possible resolution.

Hi Raymond:

I am pretty certain that the only solution is to break the request into pieces and combine. If the user does not know how to that, if they can send the relevant parts of the script they are using, or it being done from a browser, the URL, and we will work with them to implement a solution.

Thanks Roy, this is pretty much what I expected.
I thought I had a work around, using the generated URL and command line CURL, but after review , it had not really been as expected.

I do not know the details of the request, but usually the easy way to break up requests is by time,
