It wakes up, checks a couple of things and falls asleep again.  When 
idle it'll not use even a measurable amount of CPU - a few cycles a second.

I just looked at one of our sample servers and the usage is 0%, as 

When under load its CPU usage can get quite significant (although the 
amount is small compared to the main cvsnt processes).
