There is HTTP Request Monitoring and Throttling feature in SharePoint (2010/13/16) which we can switch on and off on a web app level. Is it possible to adjust threshold values for this throttling so that instead of switching it off completely we can raise number of maximum connections allowed? Or maybe there is an option to exclude certain accounts from this throttling (like local administrators on WFEs are excluded from lists thresholds for example)?
You can configure it via powershell but before increasing the number make sure your farm will support it. here is the powershell
$uri=new-object System.Uri("http://www.contoso.com") $webApp=[Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebApplication]::Lookup($uri) $httpThrottleSettings=$webApp.HttpThrottleSettings $cpu=$httpThrottleSettings.PerformanceMonitors $cpu.MaxValue=75 $httpThrottleSettings.Update()
