When i do sp_who2
   There is CPU Time and Disk I/O
 
   Is this what the particular process is doing at the time.

   CPU Time is this in milliseconds
   Disk I/O is this in bytes and to get to megs * by 1024

If the process is just sleeping are these just taking up value cpu ?

Thanks

Processes like SQL Server Agent, which although in sleeping mode, remain active as listeners (awaiting command) will take up CPU

Is it the amount of data that is being processed at the exact time.....

Physical IO

Cumulative disk reads and writes for the process.

Physical io and CPU are cumulative values for the life of the process. Also, remember that spids are re-usable so the values could be cumulative for several processes.
