One of the dimension XML files in our Forge pipeline has reached a size of approximately 1.8 GB, and we have found the total size of all dimensions XML files to be close to 2 GB.  Forge has started failing with the following error:


Reducing the size of the large dimensions XML file by removing unnecessary dimensions allows Forge to complete, but it eventually fails again as soon as it reaches about 2 GB in size.
XML formatting was validated, there was no issue with the XML format.

How can this error be avoided?
