Session() variables question

I have an ASP [Classic] application running under IIS 5 & 6 [on different
servers (obviously)]

I need to implement Session() variables to cache some frequently looked up
data. Because of the nature of the data, it is best held in the Session()
rather than the Application() object.

My question is: Is there a limit to the how long the parameter name can be?
For example:

Session("HairCo lour") - the parameter name length her is 10 characters -
what's the max length (is there a max length)?

I ask because my code will generate these parameter names on the fly and I
don't want them to break anything.....

Thanks in advance

There is no theoretical limit. Of course using names that are 1K in size
and varying only on the last few characters is going to have some
performance problems.

Let's say I run a server. I have two people using the server. Bill and Joe. Bill is at address.com/bill and Joe is at address.com/joe. Let's say Joe and Bill are both using PHP with sessions on their web pages. Let's say they both create the session variable $_SESSION. Each uses yo for a different purpose. Now we have a user accessing address.com. He goes to Bill's site and his session his started with the $_SESSION created.

Hi everyone, I've been using ASP on a few different projects over the past year, either using Javascript or VBScript. During that time, I've made use of session variables, but even then, I've tried to keep those variables to a minimum (which is not always easy). I've also read on many ASP resource sites (such as fuzzysoftware.com, etc) that the use of session variables can be a no-no, while others say that it's perfectly valid to use...

This is regarding the session management using Out of proc session management(SQL SERVER). Among the samples below which one is better to set the session? 1. There are 20 session variables and all of them are being stored into session and accessed from session and individual session object. Example: Session = "XYZ", Session=100, Session="NAME", etc.

I have been using the default session state (InProc) and have found that I have been loosing my information after a period of time (normally 20 minutes). Is there anyway to find out how much more time I have on a session? If I do a refresh, does reset the session clock? Do you have have to go to another page to reset the session timeout or will a postback also do it? This is important as we have a few pages that a user

Hi All :-) We have an APSX application using VB.net as the code behind, which uses one or two session variables per page. These Session variables are passed to the final page and calculations and summaries are done there. In order for all of the values to appear on the last page, the user has to view each page that has a session variable to be passed to the last page. The only way I can think of to bypass the necessity of the user...

Can somebody tell me how many Session variables would be considered exessive, and when they start really affect the server speed. For example on 20-30 asp pages I need to use about 200-300 session variables and 5 arrays by 1000 elements 50 characters long each. Let say having 300 users using those pages at the same time. Server is not the fastest one, just CPU 2.40GHz. So question is as a user am I going to feel a difference in speed...

Some ASP.NET applications use Session Variables extensively to maintain state. These should be re-written to use viewstate, hidden fields, querystring, etc. instead. This is because if a user opens a new IE window with Ctrl-N or File-New-Window, BOTH WINDOWS SHARE THE SAME SESSION VARIABLES. This cannot be prevented.

Hello all, I apologize for the naivety of this question, but I'm wondering whether session variables can ever be modified (somehow) by a client without having to go through code that I write. If I read in user input from a web form, sanitize the input to make sure there isn't any injected data, and then store the sanitized input in a session variable, is there any way for that session variable to be modified by the client afterwards? I...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
