Load of index Data statistics on starting page?


Just wondering when looking into performance improvements... After logging in to Splunk (...app/launcher/home), you see on the right some fancy statistics that are interesting for the first times, but after that makes one wonder... Like:

Events Indexed: 7,725,934,214
Earliest Event: 6 years ago
Latest Event: Now

It keeps on updating the numbers for quite some time, giving the impression doing some background query.
Not relevant for all users. So: anyone any knowledge of the load this causes as every user gets this?

Can this be disabled for all users and how?

The load generated by this is very low - it's not actually looking at those seven billion events but only at counters / meta-data.
