MS-TCP Loopback Interface

In Orion NPM, there is one type of interface "MS-TCP Loopback Interface". The utilisation of this interface is around 8-10 % usually. What could be the reason behind this. I mean, the interface utilisation increases when some data is transferred thru that interface.
What kind of data transfer might be taking place, resulting in this 8-10 % utilisation at Loopback interface???
