aspnet_state storage units

I have a serializable class in VB.NET which stores user data for a session.
When the data is stored by aspnet_state.exe, is the data stored in, say,
blocks of 4KB (cf. disk block sizes), or is only exactly enough space used
for the data?

(ASP.NET 1.1 on WS2003)

I would like to know because it may or may not be worth modifying the class
to minimize the data stored.

The msdn article
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...ssionstate.asp
doesn't mention it.

Looking at Windows Task Manager while starting sessions suggests that the
size of the user data is swamped by whatever else is being stored, but if
anyone knows otherwise it would be good to know.
