We have an application using a lot of process id
40 and more for 1 user !

Is it normal ?
The process is sleeping !

When we have 3 users we have 100 or more process id sleeping.

Configuration : SQL SERVER 2000
Application is in Windev.

Do you think that the application don't close the connection and open  a new one for each query ?

Thanks

If the user is in fact used by web applications, this could be normal, as in most cases, the connections are pooled, hence a certain amount of connections stay "available".

it's not a web application

The server is very slow when we have 3 or 5 users (in a local network).(Windows SBS 2003) but only sql server

How long is the life of a connection between client and sql Server 2000 ?

as long as the connection is not closed from the application, it remains open. there is no automatic connection closing mechanism.

a process id means a connection  ?

So if i have 50 process id for the same user,on the same database, i have 50 connections ?
Or only one connection ?

do you know if that use MEMORY or slow SQL SERVER ?

yes.

>do you know if that use MEMORY or slow SQL SERVER ?
each connection uses of course a bit of memory, but should not necessarly slow down sql server as such.
however, if each connection has open transactions (ie holding locks), THAT will slow down sql server, as the locks need to be managed and respected for all the other transactions...
