Hi Ernst,
this happens because Syncope delegates to Quartz the handling of 
scheduled jobs.
Jobs take care of reporting, notification, propagation, synchronization 
from external resources and also user-defined actions.

Quartz will then need to check whether it's time to fire a new trigger 
or not once in a while, and this is the kind of workload you are seeing 
at the moment.
In order to change this you can:
   a. check if the MySQL DB schema for QRTZ_* tables is lacking some indexes
   b. since the highest frequency is probably due to NotificanJob which 
is triggered every 2 minutes, you can override JobInstanceLoader.load() 
and replace the cron expression "0 0/2 * * * ?" with something more 
suitable for you

(b) is clearly far from perfection, so I've opened SYNCOPE-216 for this.
