Improve responsiveness of file share to sharepoint migration
I have been migrating a few 10's of Gbytes from on-premise file shares to cloud and find that the migration is so efficient, it saturates my network connection, causing problems for my users.
When I paused the task after 60 minutes to allow users to do their work, although the file system scanner paused, the package upload didn't, so the tool continued saturating my bandwidth for an additional 75 minutes.
It would be helpful if the migration tool had some throttling settings to avoid this situation, and if the pause could also affect the package uploader.

To improve throughput, users are encouraged to run parallel tasks against different site collections if possible. We recommend that you do not submit more than 5,000 migration jobs/requests at one time. Over-queuing the network will create an extra load on the database and slow migration down.
