How much load does putting an AP Group into hybrid spectrum monitoring cause?

We have a location that has 20 AP's in a AP Group. I'm getting a couple complaints about the signal cutting in and out. I've looked at all the AP's in the GUI and none of them show under the Potential Issues tab. Also none of them have a Noise Floor under -90, Channel Busy has only a couple over 10% with the max I'm seeing is 25%. So, I was going to turn on the Spectrum Analysis for the group, but I've never done it before, so I figured I would ask you experts first, before I took the network down on accident.

Would likely be better to turn on a few select APs into spectrum monitors and see if you find any wide spectrum or FHSS types of interferers...Find an AP near/within the problem area, flip it to spectrum via AP-specific, and let er rip. If it's something affecting a large area, flipping them all to spectrum sensors might be overkill.
