IIS 5.1: Current Connections just keeps on rising

Hi Experts,

I have IIS 5.1 on W2K Server, with a Connection Timeout of 900 secs, Unlimited Connections, and HTTP Keep Alives On; the server never seems to relinquish its connections. With visitors hitting the server, the connections gradually rise (currently about 250); when there are no visitors, for several days, the connections decrease a little but basically stay the same.

Is anything wrong?

BTW, I am using PerfMon to monitor "Current Connections"

First off, if you are running Windows 2000 Server you are using IIS 5.0, not IIS 5.1.

How do you know there are no visitors to the site for several days, and assuming that there are no visitors how much does the number of connections drop?

What do you CPU and memory utilization look like when there is traffic and when there isn't?
