Managing large SharePoint List RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am working on SharePoint 2013 on premise environment. In my application I have an requirement where I needs to store 9K+ records in the list. As SharePoint 2013 List limits is 30,000,000 as can easily store the items.

    However as I am growing the size of the list I am getting an message that, "The number of items in this list is approaching the list view threshold, which is 5000 items. This threshold is the limit at which tasks that cause excessive server load (such as those involving all list items) are prohibited"

    How can I increase this threshold value and what will be the impact if I am crossing this threshold limit.

    Secondly, I have nintex workflow which adding items in this list, and somehow its now working now. Is this threshold causing workflow failure, any idea?
