  1. Bandwidth Meter & Throttle

    Add a feature that monitors the bandwidth that Sharegate is using and gives the ability to throttle the amount of bandwidth that Sharegate uses. It would be so nice to see how much data is being downloaded/uploaded, and have the option to slow the transfers down so that other applications can still access the internet ;)

  2. Optimize Permission Matrix Reports

    I ran a permission matrix report on a site collection. Holy ****! It returned 19,000 (with 3 zeros) items. Running the report took 20ish minutes. Then expanding took 20ish minutes. Then exporting it took 20ish minutes. In the end, it was a 330MB file.
    It would be nice if it didn't take so long.
    now.. i tried running a permissions matrix on all 1900 sites. it ran and completed. then when i tried expanding it, well, let's say 24GB of ram wasn't enough. It eventually caused the VM to crash.
    So, maybe, just maybe if some optimization was accomplished, it…

  3. Performance option change based on time of the day

    Some users might want to set times to change the performance levels in Sharegate based on overall usage. It would be nice to set the performance level based on the time of the day

  5. Adjust the performance setting base on date and time

    Microsoft tell us that throttling is over the order 10 times stricter during peak work hours than it is in the 8pm to 8am block, in the time zone of the destination SPO tenant.

    Anecdotally we’ve found this to be very much the case, we rarely see throttling outside of these core hours, but frequently nuke a tenant during the working day, both with Sharegate and with CSOM PowerShell scripts.

    We’ve been trying to take advantage of this by starting our migrations with Sharegate at maximum speed, in Insane Mode, after 8pm on Friday, and then manually switching it down…
