Local cache retention
Local cache is a local copy of your SharePoint sites and settings data, which speeds up query operations considerably.
Change the number to set how many days the cache is kept for. Click Clear Cache if you would like to delete all the data (recommended if you have updates on your SharePoint environments).
The first time a query is performed, the ShareGate migration tool queries the targeted SharePoint sites and then stores all of the obtained information in a local cache that will then be used for subsequent queries. These results will significantly improve query time, often immediately displaying the query results.
Note: To bypass the local cache for a specific report, you can turn it off from the select targets window, just before running it. See Walkthrough - Reports if you need more information about reports.
