    Unanswered: Profiler Trace showing "Testing Connection..." every 3 milliseconds

    I am running a profiler trace on a given SQL Server that looks to have a memory leak (just a guess, memory used by SQL Server exceeds amount allocated by 1GB). I am seeing a ton of these messages:

    SELECT N'Testing Connection...'

    ApplicationName = SQLAgent - Job Manager

    it runs about every 3 milliseconds, is this normal and nothing to worry about?

    I do not see any jobs failing, possibly related to job history?

    What version/edition of SQL? In 2K8/R2 it's SQLAgent - Alert Engine, that fires this. It should be firing every 30 seconds.
