Why does the updates plugin slow down my site

Why do I need to have the plugin activated, when the only wpmu plugin in use is the Google Maps plugin?
And when I deactivate it I get an persistent nag
"activate the WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin now."
It does not seem very efficient this way.

    Hello there @Henk, I hope you're well today!

    My results are completely different than yours... On my installation the plugin only needs 0.0249 milliseconds according to P3.... (see attached screenshot) which is just a little more that what akismet needs, and just a small fraction of what BuddyPress uses!

    What PHP version are you using on this server? Could you please provide some more details about your host?

    Please advise,
    Ari.
