X-Dynatrace header max size

Hi!

Is there a max size for the `X-Dynatrace` header? In our case, we see some header value which are bigger than 8192 characters (the default value of Jetty max header size)? Is that normal/expected?

In appmon x-dynatrace is header that is used for loadtesting and requests tagging. So size of it is managed by you while configuring loadtest tool.

In our case, the header is used for request tagging, so we are not in control of its content, are we?

Besides, is there a reason why the header would grow to such a size? I've read somewhere that the ids of the Dynatrace agents the request goes through are concatenated in the header, would that explain the 8Ko size?
