IIS and Session_OnEnd inside of global.asa

Posted on 2001-07-11

We have created a WebClass IIS application in vb and are running into a strange problem on one of our servers.  We have a global.asa file that has logic to log a person out when the session ends..

Sub Session_OnEnd
   dim strSessionId
   strSessionId = Session.Contents.Item("strSessionId")
     set oOBJ  = Server.CreateObject("MyCOMP.MyObj")
     oOBJ.SessionName = strSessionId
     oOBJ.Logoff
     set oOBJ = nothing
End Sub

The problem that we are seeing is that this event seems to be getting fired immediately after then logon.  It is my understanding that this should not get fired until IIS times out.  Currently we have this set to 20 minutes.  Why is it getting called immediately.  This only appears to happen on some of our servers.  We have other that work fine.  They are all Win2000 server boxes with SP1 installed.  We have tried to compare IIS settings between the good and bad boxes and have not been able to see a difference.  

Anyone ever seen this?  IS there a better way to do the logout inside of the webclass?

In Web-Site properties "Home Directory" "Config" App Options" Enable Session State must be set.

Have you got "keep alives" set to true.

And in Web-Site properties properties "Web_Site"

Keep HTTP Alives Set.

Further you can save yourself some code and make the session object a parameter in your Logoff method.

e.g.

oOBJ.Logoff Session

The your logoff has access to all the Session fields.  You may not appreciate why you need this at first but you will.

Example:

You could keep a note of the type of visitors e.g. Internal Employees or external hits.
