When enabled, table metadata can be retrieved from the SharePoint cache. The default is false.

CacheTolerance

This setting defines the duration in hours that objects are permitted to live in the cache. The default is 1.

This setting defines the number of seconds that a query to the SharePoint database is allowed to run without a response. The SharePoint default timeout is 60, which may cause complex queries of larger datasets to timeout.
