ReplaceMagic can process multiple number of documents in parallel but you'll need to avoid getting throttled or blocked in SharePoint Online. Of course, this is great for performances but SharePoint platform (based on internal rules) might decide that workload created by ReplaceMagic is too high. As a consequence SharePoint might slowdown processing or even block it.

This is mainly on SharePoint.Online side but also might apply for your SharePoint on-premise depending what your SharePoint administrators configured.

To control workload (parallelization) created by ReplaceMagic you can use parameter "Parallel document processing" which is in Configuration tab (click on Configuration button in main ReplaceMagic form):

ReplaceMagic Configuration - SharePoint throttling

Depending on SharePoint configuration this number can be higher or lower but we recommend that you start with 3-5 and then do fine tuning depending how your SharePoint platform behaves.
