Rising number of connections

I monitor various statistics about HAProxy through a plugin in snmp, and oddly I'm seeing that the number of connections as reported by the front-end is increasing steadily, even though the traffic is up and down (predictably).

This increase in number of connections is also reported in HAProxys stats page. If I restart HAProxy, the connection amount restarts from 0 and slowly risese over a couple of days... although, even though the new process ends up taking over the requests, the old processes are still running (I have about 4 now - is that normal?).

See cacti graphs:

Many thanks for any help.
