I am attempting to route multiple stops using the esri routing service and get an error stating the maximum number of stops allowed is 10. I am assuming that this is a limitation set by esri for their service. My question is basically, is this ever going to be increased? If so, when? I don't want to go through the trouble of setting up my own service and maintaining it, if esri is just going to open this up in the future. Any thoughts Dasa, Bjorn, others?

The free service is likely to remain with the current limitations:
# 10 route stops per route
# 25 barriers per route
# 5,000 routes per year

If you want more route stops per route, you may either host your own routing service or subscribe to the premium services:

Thanks Bjorn.  I have up to 40 stops I need to add to a route.  I suppose I will attempt to create my own service.

Before I get too far, does the stop limit go away when I host the service on my own server?

I don't know, but I would assume it is a setting that you would be able to change.

When publishing your route service the number of stops is one of multiple constrains you can set up.

Hi Bjorn,

I had created my own Routing server. But for my own service alos I am able to solve route only upto 12 stops. Where I need to change this limit? Do we need to set it while creating the service itself?

Thanks,
Sunil

Hi Sunil,

Do you use ArcGIS Server 10.0?

If you do, please take a look at these docs below:
http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisserver/10.0/help/arcgis_server_dotnet_help/index.html#//009300000055...
http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisserver/10.0/help/arcgis_server_dotnet_help/index.html#//009300000013...

So called throttling parameters on Network Analysis services can be set from ArcCatalog in the Service Properties / Capabilities, or from ArcGIS Server Manager.
