effect when use session var?

What would happen if I have large amount of session var ~500K?
+ Waste memory on client side?
+ Waste memory on server side?
+ Slow down the program?
+ Waste bandwidth?
Which one may happen? Basically, I want to know how PHP stored session. Thanks.

By default PHP stores session in a file. This session files goes in to directory specified by session.save_path in php.ini.

Alternatively you can use DB to store session info.
Check this article. http://www.phpbuilder.com/columns/ying20000602.php3

Now 500k is not that large. But still to answer your question you can say,

- Client side you dont have to worry cause PHP is concerned on server side only.

- Memory, yes but not that much considering that 500k is not that huge.

- Yeah.

- Depends, are you passing this 500k worth of info back and forth from server/client ? Then yeah it would consume, Otherwise not.
