I have a small database, and when I execute a procedure SP_WHO2, I receive some results:

Average of conections on the database: 200

Hosts conected: 50

Of these hosts, 30 are local connections of the Windows, probably of the ASP. Its normal?

Other thing its the most conecctions are STATUS=SLEEPING. Its normal?

    I think From IIS you can identify the no of connections to the website..

    regarding the processor status we have the statuses like running, sleeping, runnable, and background
    sleeping :  Waiting on a disk I/O, or some other resource. Probably indicates a process that is running, but doing extensive disk I/O
    runnable: In the queue of runnable processes
    running : Actively running
    background : A process, such as a system procedure, run by the Server rather than by a user process
