It has lots of uses, including watching the filesystem and triggering
updates of things that need updating. This may include menu updates,
settings changes that need to be propagated, and updating views in
konqueror file manager views and file open/save dialogs.
Turning it off is probably a bad idea. If it's running slow, you should
look at your system performance, in particular hard drive speeds, using
or not using FAM or dnotify (both of which on some systems vastly speed
up such file system watching, and on others trigger bugs that make
things very slow indeed.)
