I've been working on a list with items exceeding the 5000 default list view threshold limit.
I know that I can easily go to Central Administration,Select your Web Application,Click on General Settings Then Select Resource Throttling,By default it is 5000,Change the value,put your number in the text box.
But this is applicable to entire web application then automatically some times the performance of the system is very slow.
But my goal was NOT to enable this for the entire Web application.
I only wanted to make an exception to this one list.
So I started digging into the SPList properties and found a property called "EnableThrottling".
Setting this property to "false", allowed me to bypass the 5000 limit for this one list.
I used the following PowerShell commands to achieve this:
$WebApplication = Get-SPWeb http://<SiteCollectionName>
$List = $WebApplication.Lists["My List"]
$List.EnableThrottling = $false
