Session Variables - a limit?

Is there a limit to the number of session variables that may be set?

I looked around for the answer, but haven't been able to find any reference to it. Anyone know offhand?

As far as I know, you're only limited by the memory you have. I don't think there's any technical limitation. Anyone know anything different?

JUst a heads up on session variables: a recent thread http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?ta=coldfusion&qid=10241128  reveals that session variables aren't all they're cracked up to be.

Good luck,

You are only limited by the amount of available memory.  I have 1.5 gig of memory in our CF app server.  If you are worried CF4.0 and greater will allow client variables to be save to a database.  All client/session variables would be stored on the database and retrieved when requested.  Obviously there is some performance decreases but it is a way to avoid purchasing more mem

I try to avoid session variables when possible, and use cookies instead.  You use less server memory, and you don't run in to the problem that many people have experienced, ie - session vars getting swapped from one user to another.  Had to put a lot of CFLOCKs in to handle this problem.  Maybe they will have it fixed by 4.5 though.
