"Unrestored log threshold (set up at the mirror server): helps estimate how long it would take the mirror server to roll forward the log records remaining in its redo queue. We send an alert if the redo queue exceeds a certain threshold, usually between 250 kilobytes (KB) and 500 KB. The actual value may change for each database depending upon the database's workload and behavior patterns.
We run an initial script on the mirror that looks for any databases participating in database mirroring. It sets a baseline log threshold value for each database. Each mirrored database gets the same initial setting.
We run a second script on the mirror server that adjusts the threshold value for any databases that may need a different value due to differing patterns of update activity."


You should be able to chnage the treshold that by using kb article below:

PS: the 2 articles u sent me explains a lot, but i do not know where the threshold value is set up, and futher more how much should i change it to...

Use sp_dbmmonitorhelpalert database_name to see the existing values of the trheshold alert(s)

Then use sp_dbmmonitorchangealert database_name  to set new values for an existing alert(s)
