Typically, the TA for DNSServer and DomainController (in the Addons directory inside the Splunk for AD app folder $SPLUNKHOMEetcappsSplunkfor_ActiveDirectoryappserveraddons, will run the necessary PowerShell scripts for the inputs for each DNS and domain controller. The cpu may reach a few percent more when the PowerShell scripts are running due to the WMI calls they make, but you shouldn't notice much of a performance hit once the initial apps are deployed.
