The mirrors table has a max_file_size entry in epic DB. However, the frontend doesn't tell the users that their file is too big, and thus the files just sit there and never get to the mirrors. That table should be checked to make sure there are enough mirrors that would accept it, and if not a suitable error displayed if the file might be big enough to be an issue. The limit for most mirrors is the same, and about 5GB it appears.

    We do have a 1GB limit for web uploads, so this would just be for files uploaded other ways, right? Does the PFS api expose the max_file_size or a flag for individual files that are over it?

    We should probably just do a simple cron job to notify project admins of files uploaded via rsync/etc that are over this limit.
