Splunk Search

Issue with real-time searches for metadata running because of ui-prefs.conf settings.

When we launch Splunk Home or Search page, there is this metadata that runs in real-time eating up our resources available at hand.

|metadata type=sourcetypes | search totalcount>0

I have read other answers here in the forum that say it can be disabled by changing the config at ui-prefs.conf.

My question is: What would be any repercussions of performing this tweak - is this search actually being used somewhere else?
Actually, what is the purpose/benefit/importance of this search?
