Lot of Processes accumlating in SysProcesses

Hi Experts,

I have unique problem since last week i have lot of processes in sysprocesses though most of them are Sleeping still i am worried. What i see is majorly those processes are of lastwaittype "WriteLog" but waittype is "0x000" so they are not waiting out of total 233 processes as of now there are 128 which belongs to this type. What coule be the problem?

waittype: The waittype field is a reserved internal binary column. The value in the waittype field indicates the type of resource that the connection is waiting on.

• lastwaittype: The lastwaittype field is a string representation of the waittype field. The lastwaittype field indicates the last waittype or the current waittype of a SPID. If the value of the waittype column for an SPID is 0x0000, the SPID is not currently waiting on any resource. In this case, the lastwaittype column indicates the last waittype that the SPID has experienced. However, if the value of the waittype column for an SPID is non-zero, the values in the lastwaittype column and the waittype column for the SPID are equal. These values indicate the current wait state for the SPID.
As you have correctly identifed, the processes are not waiting but the lastwaittyoe "writlog" indicates that
"This waittype indicates that the SPID is waiting for a transaction log I/O request to complete. This waittype may also indicate a possible disk bottleneck."
