    ASM Connection Pool Process


      Since the last restart (16 days ago) I verify some (11) Active ASM Connection Pool Process running on the instance 1 of the database and no similar process running on instance 2.

      Those processes are ACTIVE since the start of DB (23.000 minutes).
      They have 2 kinds of Wait Events:
           SQL*Net message from client
           class slave wait

      I verify the documentation and find those processes are created on demand to maintains a connection with ASM for Metadata operation. So, my question is why those processes are still ACTIVE? Is it normal?

      Oracle version - running on RAC (2 instances) with ASM
      OS – Linux RHEL 5.6
