    Unanswered: number of active connections

    I have to buy a license for MS SQL Server 2000 and I need to know how many active connections I will need.
    I could try by running the application with multiple users and see how many connections there are.

    The questions is: How can I know the number of active connections to the Server?

    sql server is licensed per seat or per proccessor. small to medium sized business with no web exposure usually do per seat. a bigger company or a web exposed app using sql server usually goes per processor.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.
