PA Storage Monitor has been designed to use as few system resources as possible. The goal is not to affect the server it is running on, and also not to affect any monitored servers.
The Settings dialog lets you specify a target CPU Usage %. In general the monitoring service will attempt to keep CPU usage at or below that level. Occasionally, when flushing data to the database or when running large reports, the CPU Usage can spike higher, but that will be temporary and should not have an impact on the system.
In addition, certain long-running monitors will use low-priority threads so they will only use unneeded CPU cycles, and get pushed to the background immediately if 'real' work needs to be done by the system.
The Product Security page can answer any questions you might have regarding monitoring security.
Since PA Storage Monitor is so quick and easy to install, downloading and trying it is probably the easiest way to see exactly how it will behave in your environment with your configuration.
