Collapse this tableExpand this table
If you are tracing a Query Analyzer session to SQL Server, the Host Process ID in Profiler should have the same value as the SELECT HOST_ID() run from the Query Analyzer and both should return the PID of the Query Analyzer process (which still shows up as isqlw.exe in Task Manager).
When you actually perform the trace, the value that displays under the Host Process ID field in Profiler is different from the value returned by SELECT HOST_ID(). However, the value returned by SELECT HOST_ID() in the Query Analyzer matches the PID for isqlw.exe as shown by Task Manager.
