An indication of whether the Collection Service should, in Content Summary data collection:

NOTE:  If your environment includes a large number of hidden lists and/or document versions, including them could noticeably increase the duration of the data collection operation.

CAUTION:  Increasing this value beyond double the number of cores on the Collection Service machine will not necessarily increase the speed of data collection and may negatively impact SharePoint performance.
