cisvc is the content indexer service.

I believe it is a required component for CRM, but I am not 100% positive.

It is not unusual to see it use a significant amout of CPU while building the initial indexes of files.  After it completes the first full index the porcessor utilization should drop to almost nothing and then spike occasionally as it indexes new content.
