Hi,
I am starting to work on a new project with which I need to store information. There can be quite a lot of information for each product and the site is supposed to handle lots of customers at the same time. The information can be stored in the Session object. What I need to know is where I can find good documentation about the limitations of the session object storage size.

I do not need information about work-arounds since I have a couple of other ideas, but I do need to convince my colleagues in my approach so that's why I need the information.

regards,
CJ

Is this ASP session object or IIS ?
Generally the session object is to be avoided as yo will have problems caling it with an web farm.
Other technicques such as passing data in form,cookies or storeing session info in a database is preferable

If there is alot of information then think about storing it in a central database.  You will also have problems using the session object in most kinds of load balanced environments (the Session object is local to each webserver).

Thank you both for your comments. But both comments do not apply on the question I have asked.

Is there any documentation of the limitations of the session object (memory usage etc.)
