The list or library contains a large number of items. Learn about managing a large list or library and ensuring that items display quickly.

Today we have received one incident ticket in which the user was facing the below mentioned error message:
The list or library contains a large number of items. Learn about managing a large list or library and ensuring that items display quickly.
Hmm…Pretty much enough to understand that the library or list consist of so many items and now it’s affecting the performance. If you wanna see the performance criteria which have been defined by Microsoft then please refer this link:
Microsoft has given a very detailed description regarding the performance criteria:
Once you’ve exceeded the 2000 item limit, you may see this message on the list settings page (red exclamation point):
The list or library contains a large number of items.
Please keep one more msdn article handy with you to make the clear understanding of this point: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ecm/archive/2010/04/05/it-looks-like-you-re-building-a-large-library-would-you-like-help.aspx
If you still has any queries/questions then please let me know. I would be more than happy to discuss the problem and helps you to resolves your issues as soon as possible. Thank you.

    1. No, it's not like that. You will be able to save the data without any problems.

      That message is the alert/notification that "this is the start of performance problems" and you need to take immediate action to avoid further problems.

      Let me know in case of any further queries, Thank you.

    1. Central administration- web application general settings - by this settings you can manage the threshold. that will be helpful to manage the performance. let me know in case of any further queries, thank you.
