As I understand SharePoint resource throttling for large sets of items was introduced in SP2010 to safeguard against SQL table locks by massive queries from SharePoint. I have 2 questions about this resource throttling:
- Are there major (or any at all) changes in resource throttling implementation (default values, the way it is enforced) between SP2010 & SP2013?
- Doing some test in SharePoint 2013 I noticed that when I create list with 5000+ items I don't see threshold being enforced, but at the same time when I create a library with 5000+ directories it is being enforced. Why is it so?
Can somebody confirm that/share links to documentation which explains this?
