how can i find out the current session id of the SSMS window I  have open?

Each new window is a diff session id?

If I have
SELECT GETDATE()
GO
SELECT GETDATE()

Will it the same session id for both select statements?

Thanks

each window is a new connection, which is a new session (new session id)

OK.

Like we have sys.sysprocesses for process id, what is the system view for session id?

There is not really any connection between the SPID and the connection
string, not more than between a car and a petrol station. The connection
string only specifies you connect to SQL Server.

However, an instance of a connection object in ASP .Net maps to a spid in
SQL Server. If you open Task Manager in Windows, you will see a number of
processes that all have a PID (process id). Spids in SQL Server are
locigally the same: process ids, but within SQL Server.
