CISVC.EXE & High CPU Usage

Dear All

Today I was working on one of our live Web server as one of program head head told websites were become slow so I checked task manager found cisvc.exe process was utilising a high CPU because of which w3wp.exe proces was not functioning speedly.( Sites was responding slow )

now the question is
What is cisvc.exe?
  It’s a Indexing Server which will index the files and folders and is required for IIS for better search so we can’t stop the service

Solution :-
 I have executed Process Explorer on the server and checked for CISVC.exe process right clicked on the proces and set the priority from ” NORMAL 8 ” to ” Below Normal 6″ and suddenly the CPU usage of CISVC.exe come down.
