Session variables lost

P: n/a
I have an application that uses sessions variables a lot but one I publish
the application on the prod server these variables are lost. The application
is written i c# 2.0 and I've set the statServer timeout to 20 min in the the
web.config file. Any ideas why the variables are lost?

Are you using InProc for maintaining state ?

If you're using InProc, your session variables will be lost
any time your ASP.NET process recycles.

If you *are* using InProc, you might want to look into using
State Server of SQL Server for maintaining state.

Hi!
Yes I did use Inproc but now I'm using StateServer instead and it works
fine. I still don't know why the process recyles so often, I lost the
variables every 10 seconds.

Good !

re: I lost the variables every 10 seconds.
That points to a serious coding problem, if the ASP.NET
process is being recycled every 10 seconds.

Check the event viewer to see the reason for the quick recycling.

Also, check the Application Pool's recycle settings.

You may have very short number of requests,
time or max memory consumption settings.

Hi guys,
I have also problem with losing my session variables but in the following
scenario.

I'm developing a web site on IIS5.1 hosted on WinXP using ASP.NET 1.1 with
C# and everything is very cool.
When I deploy to test environment I can remark that my session variables are
lost after web application make call to a com component. Immediately after
this, I'm losing session variables.
Test environment is on Win2003 and IIS6.

Should I change way of storing my session variables and use Cache object
insted of Session or what!?

Best regards,
Vasko

Thanx for answer.
