my question about the On Demand activity details is the following:
What's the impact to
users/reports when the "User activity details and server statistics on
demand" setting is turned down?
What would be a potential drawback in turning it down or off?
Thank you in advance for your answers.

With that setting turned on, the CAS will store today's user/server data in a flat file on the file system so it doesn't have to query SQL. This makes loading reports based on today's data much quicker (or for however many days you set it).
I had a problem with 12.3 where it would store too much data on my file system, fill my hard drive, and essentially break the CAS process. Setting the limit to 2 days should help avoid that issue. I'd just pay attention to your disk space. You can find those files in [cas_install]/trafficData
Interesting - although the default doesn't necessarily matter. I believe this value is stored in the db - when I was automating the DC RUM installation, this was the only manual step as I hadn't found a way to change it in a config file.
