Management CPU Utilization is 100%

Our PA-500 management utlization reaches 100% sometimes...according to PA support, There's a process called '' runs every 15 minutes for log indexing.

We need to reduce the management plane traffic for better performance. Any suggestions?

The last part talks specifically about the reports, but the whole article is pretty helpful.
