I was greeted this morning with alerts that the user connection count on one of our testing DB server was up to 380. I verified this amount in perfmon. However, when I check activity monitor, sys.dm_exec_sessions, and master.dbo.sysprocesses to find out what's going on I am only able to locate 21 system and 16 user processes. Any ideas on how to trace down where the 380 comes from?

That sounds suspiciously like there is some new code running that is not disposing of the connection objects correctly. I have seen this happen when .NET devs do not dispose of their connections. It filled up the pool to 999 connections and no new ones could be made until the pool killed the idle connections when they timed out.

Hmm. There is no active testing or development going on with the DBs on this server. Any suggestions on where I can narrow down potential sources? Don't see anything in the event logs.
