I ran this command to find the number of connections

SELECT db_name(dbid) as DatabaseName, count(dbid) as NoOfConnections,
loginame as LoginName
FROM sys.sysprocesses
WHERE dbid > 0
GROUP BY dbid, loginame

Open in new window



Here are my results.  Why does the master have 18 open connections.  How does that happen.  I only use one database that is callled CAPRegisters
DatabaseName	NoOfConnections	LoginName
msdb	2	NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE                                                                                                    
ReportServer	1	NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE                                                                                                    
master	18	sa

These are not a concern to worry as its just socket connection for SA as it provide different connections per database and it will not create any issue.
