a) checking could be performed by the application or app server or app
server plug-in; start by looking for PostSizeLimit in the WebSphere
plug-in config file

b) get IBM to investigate by opening a PMR with IBM support; generally
speaking, the folks hanging out here do not know what IBM HTTP Server
is and cannot field questions on it; discussions here are generally
limited to the web server which you download from
(you could do packet trace yourself between plug-in and app server to
see which side is generating the 413, thus narrowing the scope of
investigation dramatically)
