Add indexes to columns
Lets say it is sorting by category and filtering by status, then both those fields need to be indexed. It’s very easy to add something a column to the index.
Go the list settings
Click on the column "Indexed Columns"
Click on Create a new Index
Under primary column select the column you want.
The number of items in a folder needs to be less or equal to the list view threshold.
If a list/library has 4000 items and a folder with 3000 items, both the folder view and the root folder view will work for a list view threshold of 5000. However, if the folder or root folder grows to have more than 5000 items, it will stop displaying items in the default ...
Via Central Administration:
Manage web applications / Select the web application, then from the drop down list 'General Settings' select 'Resource Throttling' / change the value of 'List View Lookup Threshold'
Or via PowerShell:
$wa = Get-SPWebApplication http://YourSharePointSite
$wa.MaxQueryLookupFields = 20
A few comments:
The views are limited to 5000 (by default), not really the list. This means a design including a folder structure is less subject to the limitation.
The performance impact is more determined by the usage of the list than its volume. Number of read or write operations, and ratio between writes and reads are very important.
The performance ...
The ID column is a built-in column (in table AllUserData) that is shared by all list items from all lists. In the SQL table it is naturally indexed in the SQL sense.
User-defined columns are not created as new SQL columns; instead, SharePoint uses one of the many generic columns available in the AllUserData table. There are a lot of these columns (~10 for ...
To avoid the listview threshold, you need to index columns in your library and query against that column. So long as the number of rows returned in your query is below the listview threshold, you won't get the exception.
As an example, I hit this problem when trying to retrieve all the folders in a SharePoint library. The number of folders was well below ...
I'd go for the SQL database. For several reasons:
Storing into SharePoint list adds a lot of overhead that you don't need.
With 20K items per day you'll reach the supported max in 15000 days and list throtling limit in 6 hours
But most important with that amount of data what you want to get out is aggregate to make sense of the data. And this is the area ...
If you're not performing a filter within a View on an indexed column, you may receive this error. In addition, if you're attempting to use multiple filters, the first filter must return <5K results before moving onto additional filters.
As a site collection administrator, the threshold is 20 000 items. If you ask someone that is not an SCA, they will hit the threshold.
A normal user will hit the threshold limit.
List view threshold - greater than 5,000 - Threshold
Specifies the maximum number of list or library items that a database
operation, such as a query, can process at the ...
I had a similar issue this morning, with an external dataset with around 100,000 records. The way I worked around it was to create a SQL stored procedure to do the Read List operation, rather than querying the data directly. The Read Item operation can still be linked directly to the list, rather than requiring a second stored procedure.
On the Read List ...
The reason behind working on ID column and throwing error on other column type is very simple and clear.
We aware about the fact that if we want to fetch data or filter data from list containing more than 5000 items, we will need to use indexed column.
And index of ID column is by default maintained by SharePoint. So if you need to filter data using other ...
I would, and have in the past, use a separate SQL database to store all of that data. This will require additional work for the presentation of the data, but using BCS, SSRS and/or PowerPivot, you can pretty easily pull that into SharePoint. I wouldn't put that much into a SP content database and expect good things ;)
Create a view in your list. Set a filter on the view to filter the data so the total number of items displayed in the view is less than the threshold, based on e.g. a date range, a number, by item id etc.
Then after you can use the ListItemCollectionPosition class to implement paging list item retrieval according to the position of items relative to their ...
Yikes!!!! I cannot believe turning off the threshold is an accepted solution here. There is a reason why a threshold exists.
I had a similiar issue in a SPF environment. First I set Checked Out To as indexed. Here are the view filters that were entered to get the desired results:
Checked Out To is not equal to [leave the textbox empty]
ID is greater ...
You have the option to set the list view throttling really high, however there is another option to disable the throttling altogether. We've actually disabled the list view throttling on two particular lists on our farm.
Here is a powershell script, to disable list view throttling:
$web = Get-SPWeb http://url/to/web/with/list
$list = $web.Lists[“...
You can use the ContentIterator class to bypass the list view threshold, but you would need to resort to custom code to fetch the data.
Documentation: "Provides methods to iterate list items, lists, sites to regulate the amount of data that is transferred (i.e., to avoid throwing a SPQueryThrottledException)."
Open the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration, Go to Application Management => Manage Web Applications and then select your web application. In the Ribbon, select the General Settings => Resource Throttling, There you can see the threshold limit 5000, edit the value as you need and save it.
The boundary limit is 25 million documents inside the library, however you will come accross the List View Threshold limitations when you add more than 5.000 items (documents and/or folders) in the same folder.
There are many discussion on how to handle this, but basically you need to create views that filter the documents (in order to return less than 5000 ...
From experience :
As stated by others, you can have a view that returns more than the threshold (default 5000).
There are three things that can be used to achieve this :
Paging. Flat view with no filer/grouping/total.
Filter/Grouping/Total, but you cannot use one of those on columns that are not indexed. If you need to do so, do it before reaching the ...
No, Its not possible to change the list item threshold value, What happens if you have 5001 items? This little gem of an error pops up: "The number of items in this list exceeds the list view threshold, which is 5000 items. Tasks that cause excessive server load (such as those involving all list items) are currently prohibited." In a nutshell, you will not ...
I know that you've mentioned that your solution should not involve increasing the list view threshold, however you can do this on a list-by-list basis if required (assuming your SharePoint in on-premises) using PowerShell.
The PowerShell to do this is:
$web = Get-SPWeb http://WebURL.domain.com
$list = $web.Lists["ListName"]
$list.EnableThrottling = $false
A new feature in SharePoint Server 2010, resource throttling provides options for monitoring and throttling server resources and large lists for Web applications. This enables you to control resource utilization during peak usage and prevent user activity from negatively affecting server performance.
Resource throttling can monitor such resources as CPU,...
It is not recommended to change this value. It may consume more server resources and it increases the risk of getting deadlocks in your environment when users are accessing lists and libraries etc.
To minimize database contention, SQL Server often uses row-level
locking as a strategy to ensure accurate updates without adversely
impacting other users ...
You need to use below updated code as your CAML query.
SPQuery query = new SPQuery();
query.Query = "<Where><And><Eq><FieldRef LookupId='TRUE' Name='Program'/><Value Type='Lookup'>6</Value></Eq><Eq><FieldRef LookupId='TRUE' Name='Responsible_x0020_Group'/><Value Type='Lookup'>9</Value></Eq&...
Threshold is not a boundary or a limit, instead it's a restrictiona in which the default value can't be exceeded unless that value is explicitly modified.
You can not set List View threshold for a single list. This can only be done on Web Application level. Follow these steps:
Login to Central Admin
Go to Application Management -> Manage Web Applications
The view on a list is just a query to the Content Database in the back end which stores the data for the list. A SharePoint list can hold millions of items in them. You need to index your list data to help with the threshold limit. List item threshold is a query limit, and not a list limit. Your view will still work, but there is a chance it will timeout ...
The Approval Status column is a system column which will be added to list when content approval is enabled in that list and the column is read only.
If you want to see and manage this field, you can use the open source SharePoint Client Browser to achieve it. You can use this free tool to see all fields of the list.
