Unknown long running SPID when starting ETL refresh

when an ETL refresh happens, it may kick off an unknown long running SPID 
The function running is designed to pull the ETL History and Recent Status information for each individual SSIS package.  This should not impede performance but if there is concern about the process it can be reduced by deleting past ETL history directly through from the database via an SSMS query.  Contact support for further assistance.
