What performance impact does node caching have?

Title.... can it be turned off? Can the threshold for the timer be changed to increase performance/stability? Or is the option essentially just a leftover feature from older builds

Node caching is to avoid node rebuilds on larger maps. The threshold is set to a time period where it starts to become noticable if a node rebuild takes place.
If you switch it off, loading of larger maps takes longer.
For small maps no nodes will be cached.
