“Oh sir, it’s only wafer thin!” – SharePoint 2010 Large List Maintenance

With SharePoint 2010, as has been said around the campfire, “5,000 is the new 2,000!” What does that mean? It means that we now need to be mindful of not just how many items are in our lists, but how our views are constructed as well because, well, it’s not as dramatic as the scene referenced in the title of this topic, but let’s just say it’s not really pretty. Today’s 15 minutes will discuss the areas that are impacted by these throttles, and the various ways of handling and managing a large number of items in a SharePoint list.
