Each SAP ASE-to-XP Server connection uses one remote site connection.

Internally, number of remote sites determines the number of site handlers that can be active at any one time; all server accesses from a single site are managed with a single site handler. For example, if you set number of remote sites to 5, and each site initiates three remote procedure calls, sp_who shows 5 site handler processes for the 15 processes.
