Heavy database operations on SharePoint server may sometimes affects the user experience; SharePoint 2010 introduced a concept of List Throttling which prevents your server being going down. List Throttling allows an administrator to specify the maximum number of items that can be retrieved in a single request. For example, if user creates a view with page size 5000 but if administrator limits the list view threshold of 2000 items, no rows will be returned to user.
