    It is using a lot of system resources, and I'd like to know what purpose it serves so I know if there's some way I can reduce its activity.

    Its part of the jQuery library needed to run WordPress.

    But what does it DO? Is there something I can do with my installation to make WordPress require it less often?

    It serves as foundational purpose for all other do-able jQuery, it doesn't necessarily do anything by itself.

    @Andrew: Nicely put. :-)

    Avoid using themes or plugins that make use of jQuery/javascript.
