Hi, Just wondering why every time I run the profiler on SQL Server 2008, and I monitor the Activity Monitor's network I/O it increases and when I stop or pause the profiler the network I/O decreases? This occurs the same when I run the profiler remotely or on the SQL Server instance. What has this got to do with network I/O?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Even when connecting to the local instance, the connection goes through the virtual loopback network connection.

SQL Profiler generates a lot of network traffic.
