Open SharePoint 2016/2013 central administration -> Application Management -> Manage Web Applications.
Select the problematic Web Application and then select the down arrow next to General Settings and click Resource Throttling.
On the bottom of the window, there will be an option to turn HTTP Request Monitoring and Throttling Off. Click OK to save changes.
