Sessions never end (again) - Please help

P: n/a
This is a repost (pasted below). Since my original post, I've double
checked the system clock and set all IIS Session Timeout values to 10
minutes. Still ...the problem occurs. I've also installed Deep Metrix Live
Stats 6.2 XPS just to make sure nothing really strange was going on was
going on. Still....the sessions only increment...or should I say my counter
in my asax file.... and never goes down.

If it matters, this machine is hosting 3 sites and it has a single IP
address. I've set IIS 5 to look at the host headers and redirect to the
"site" on itself. This is done every day and I can't possibly see how this
would effect the Sessions but you never know.

I'm totally stumped!! Thoughts?....
*****************

I'm using ASP(.NET) trickery to show the number of "current users" on one of
my web sites (http://www.drpt.virginia.gov). I use this method on a few of
my sites but it seems that only this one (on this machine) gives me trouble.
The trouble seems that the sessions simply never end so the code in my Sub
Session_OnEnd is never fired. As I understand it, sessions will expire
after 20 minutes but default if there is no further activity from the
requestor. Yet, my counter never seems to decrement....only increment. My
code is below and I don't think it's a code (ASP) issue...this is a common
trick and this exact code works fine on other sites. I think it's an issue
with this one machine. Can anyone help or tell me what to check??

Thanks!!

I assume you are using InProc session state mode?

Thanks! I added that and did a little research on InProc. We'll see what
happens. I've also been using Session_OnEnd in my asax file instead of
Session_End as I showed in my code.

So what's the difference and did this OnEnd change just to "End" in .NET?
I've always used OnStart and OnEnd in my asa (classic) files. Yet all my
books and online resources just mentioned "End" but never explain that this
has changed. Did it infact change?

Thanks again!

Your web.config will contain a line like :-

or some other similar setting.(StateServer etc...). If you can provide the

Thanks! My web.config file is as follows:

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="Off" />
<compilation debug="true" />
<sessionState mode="InProc" />
</system.web>
</configuration>
I'm STILL having this problem though. I came back this a.m. and checked it
and the site had "2000+ current users" which of course is false. It just
counted ALL users over the weekend and never released the sessions. I also
believe there is some confusion on my part on Session_OnEnd and Session_End
(see reply above).

P: n/a
Which one are you using (Session_OnEnd, Session_End ?) AFAIK under ASP.NET
you should use Session_End.
For now you could keep both and use an application variable to count how
often it is fired (hopefully you'll find Session_End always fires while
Session_OnEnd is never called).

In some cases, the On<EventName> *method* is what the class does for you on
this event (in particular it raises the <EventName> event) and the
<EventName> *event* is to declare what you would like to do. That's probably
why they renamed the event compared with ASP classic.

Thanks! My web.config file is as follows:

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="Off" />
<compilation debug="true" />
<sessionState mode="InProc" />
</system.web>
</configuration>
I'm STILL having this problem though. I came back this a.m. and checked it and the site had "2000+ current users" which of course is false. It just
counted ALL users over the weekend and never released the sessions. I also believe there is some confusion on my part on Session_OnEnd and Session_End (see reply above).

NEVERMIND! The problem is so embarrassing, I won't even tell you want it
was.

It was in fact my code.

This is a repost (pasted below). Since my original post, I've double
checked the system clock and set all IIS Session Timeout values to 10
minutes. Still ...the problem occurs. I've also installed Deep Metrix Live Stats 6.2 XPS just to make sure nothing really strange was going on was
going on. Still....the sessions only increment...or should I say my counter in my asax file.... and never goes down.

If it matters, this machine is hosting 3 sites and it has a single IP
address. I've set IIS 5 to look at the host headers and redirect to the
"site" on itself. This is done every day and I can't possibly see how this would effect the Sessions but you never know.

I'm totally stumped!! Thoughts?....

I'm using ASP(.NET) trickery to show the number of "current users" on one of my web sites (http://www.drpt.virginia.gov). I use this method on a few of my sites but it seems that only this one (on this machine) gives me trouble. The trouble seems that the sessions simply never end so the code in my Sub
Session_OnEnd is never fired. As I understand it, sessions will expire
after 20 minutes but default if there is no further activity from the
requestor. Yet, my counter never seems to decrement....only increment. My
code is below and I don't think it's a code (ASP) issue...this is a common
