In SQL Server Activity monitor I am currently seeing very high Batch Requests per second - fluctuates from 1200 - 2000 Batch Requests/sec - The cpu usage is not very high on the box - it is around 18%. The network I/O is also not very high. It is fluctuating between 100-150 in Recent Wait Time [ms\sec] - Not very much activity going on when I look at sp_who2 Active - just a few calls for FETCH API_CURSOR

Has anyone else had this issue and what can be done for me to pinpoint the exact issue going on here.

Thanks in advance for any help with this issue.

Tthe symptoms you mentioned are almost more positive than they are negative.  See the posting here:    http://sqlserverplanet.com/dba/understanding-batch-requests-sec

It's an overall explanation of the batch reqs/per second, and as you will see, your goal actually is to see the larger number of reqs per second, while the other counters remain low, as you've described with the network i/o and the cpu.

If you want to dig further, and isolate the activity for each of the requests, you would want to keep going the way you already are, with sp_who2, and possibly even profiler.
