Dynamic Map Service instances max out problem??

I have a custom javascript api application that uses a dynamic map service.
The map service is a pooled with 4 max instances and 1 min instances.

At the initial map load, the map service spins off 2 instances...
As I move around the map and perform queries, map service spins off more instances and soon uses all 4 instances.
However, I rarely see "Instances in Use" any higher than 1.. Usually 0.

Now is this a normal?? Would instances usually spin off this many from one application and the user happens to be just myself??
I think I would feel ok, if instances are at 2 but when I see 4 instances, I feel I should do someting about it.
Not sure, am I over reacting...
