Workflow-eventdelivery-throttle: Stsadm property (Windows SharePoint Services)
Updated: September 13, 2007
Applies To: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
Specifies the number of workflows that can be processed (that is, using the processor, not idle) at the same time across all front-end Web servers.
Throttle is a limit across all workflows; however, batch size is the number of events processed for a single instance, which can have many events queued at the same time. Throttle overrides batch size; that is, if the workflow instance cannot be started or restarted because there are too many instances running across all front-end Web servers, none of the events will be fetched, regardless of the batch size.
stsadm -o setproperty
-propertyvalue <A valid integer>
The syntax for the getproperty operation is:

You can substitute -pn for -propertyname and -pv for -propertyvalue.

The default value is 15.
Typically, a path to the URL of the Web application, in the form http://server_name.
