I have a business requirement to provide full Changelist description search on all items. I've read this is possible* by setting the field in Edit menu > Preferences > ServerData > "Number of changelists, jobs, branch mappings or labels to fetch at a time" to 0 so that all changelists are fetched and I can then do a search of the the changelist description by opening View menu > Submitted Changelists > Ctrl + F (in the tab).

What I'd like to know is the impact of setting this once the number of changelists begins to build up. How often is the data fetched? What parts of the client app will slow down? Is this feasible in the long-term?

*Ideally I'd want to conduct a changelist description search on the server (and not have to fetch all changelists), but from my googling that doesn't appear possible.
