Metabase is firing queries multiple times in a day even though we scheduled sync/scanning/fingerprinting once a day

A large number of queries being run by Metabase, presumably related to the syncing/scanning/fingerprinting (I am not sure what it is) of the schema in our DB even though we have scheduled it to run once a day.

It is causing us performance issues. Does anyone know why its happening? I am using metabase version

Are you adding filters to dashboards often?

Yes we do add filters in our metacards and dashboards. Why?? Is that an issue.
