comment How long does Upgrade-SPSite takes to upgrade a site collection?
As another test after this completes, you could try running Test-SPSite to do a site collection health check. This may highlight any specific issues (other than the large no. subsites).

Did you specify VersionUpgrade as a parameter? Or just Build-to-build upgrade?

I know you are doing this to test the upgrade path to 2013, but it could be a good opportunity to split that many subsites into separate site collections (perhaps, for example in the SP2010 environment) which will help with maintenance in the future.

Yep, one of the features readily available on O365 which will take a while for uptake for on-prem SP2013 installs.

Assuming you are using Sharepoint 2010 and above. (which is reasonable, but thought I would add it anyway).

comment Self-service site creation (e.g. MySites) - specify Content DB
Thanks - yes that was my line of thinking - host named site collections. The round robin is not ideal as some my sites could end up in other sites content Dbs. Looks like MySites still needs to be in its own web application. :)

comment Powershell Enumerate through all site collections but not include one specific site collection
A word of advice, before you test the "exclude" function, comment out the actual update code and replace it with debug code like writing the Url of the site - to confirm it has excluded mysites. :)

I would not suggest storing application-specific data in the configuration database.

This is pretty much the same answer as @Simon Doy s, except you are passing a StreamReader instead.
