Exchange 2016 Back Pressure

Last Modified: 2021-04-12
With the new "Back Pressure" design with Exchange 2016, there is nowhere that this security mechanism can be adjusted. I know it serve's a purpose, I know its there for a reason, but when I have a client in a cloud environment that  I have to keep going back to them to request adding additional space where the Transport queue DB is held, its starting to become a problem. Now, I have gone everywhere on this Exchange system to set some throttling and there is absolutely nowhere to set this. Spoke to MS concerning this and the only advice that they gave me was to put the Transport queue on a separate DB, which has already been done.
Has ANYBODY been successful at managing this monster outside of the obvious (keep increasing disk space, Transport queue, etc..)
