When monitoring the Transactions/Sec using perfmon on one of my SQL2005 replicated databases – I’m seeing the TPS increase to 1000 and then immediately drop back down again – this happens every 5 seconds.
I’m not sure what’s causing this – is this something to do with replication?
We also have asynchronous statistics set on this particular database.
I’ve tried profiling when the users are not connected – but nothing is writing to the database.
ADDED PICTURE AND BOUNTY
When you ran the profiler, did you exclude all filters so all events would show?
