Nodered Blows on Upload

I'm uploading files with Nodered. Works fine but blows chunks when the files go above a certain size, for example 30MB. I'm using HTTP input node. Is this normal, is there an easy workaround? I'm running on an AWS instance so memory costs. I can recode that section in PHP but I really want to keep the moving pieces at a minimum.

Any ideas why this happens? upload_ui is not an option for various reasons.

Nodered says this when it goes boom..
nodered.service: Main process exited, code=killed, status=9/KILL
nodered.service: Failed with result 'signal'.

Works just fine with small files. Big files HTTP node goes boom.

Check the node red log, that is the one with the 'Welcome to node red' message.

Using that as a google search term shows a lot of out of memory issues. The fact that it works for smaller files and you seem to indicate you have a memory limit, it would seem to point in that direction.

I'm not an AWS user, but if you can temporary upgrade the memory do you still have the issue?

More digging and large uploads work fine on other copies of node-red I'm running.

Has to be something to do with this server. Now I guess endless hours of fun playing why ain't this like the others.

Increasing instance size worked yet other instance that works is small size.

So, server/config problem of some sort.
