configuration Session evaluation Session memory Asp.net Web.config

We have ASP.NET project . More the 1000  users running this application
Session is configrated in ceparate process
this is tag from WEB.config
<sessionState mode="StateServer" stateConnectionString="tcpip=localhost:42424" cookieless="false" timeout="95"/>
our developer had an assigment  to implement Document Listing.
She implemenetd this way :
1) She put all Data into  Session ,its about 13 763 KB for one user.
2 ) then  she  implemets  paging , basing on  this data
I guess this is not best implementation , cause  we can have lack of memory.

How to evaluate if have memory enouhg for this listing implementation?

Hi Yampolka,

     There is one attribute in machine.config of your system. Which specifies percentage of memory aspnet_wp process uses, so if it goes beyond that percentage than process get killed.

     As such by default it increase memory utilization automatically depend on your application operation.

Hi Yampolka,

      From your explaination it seems custom paging (only fetch data which is requires for the page, if you show 10 rows to the user then only fetch 10 rows from database rather than all the rows in session and do the paging) is best solution if you are implementing paging.

      13, 763 KB is very huge data as you already know it is not recommended to keep it in session. However you have to see how many concurrrent (simultaneous login) users will be available in the system at a time. As in many scenario all the user is not accessing system simultaneously.

       so if you have 1000 users and 100 concurrent user in peak time than you need atleast 13, 763 00 KB memory for state server.

       You can use load test or stress test tool to measure load / performance of application server and state server.

Than you
Unfortunatelu I  am not alowed to change this code
I understand that it's wrong approach
! When I look at the Task Manager  Process Tab : I see that
ASPNET_state process takes about 16 000KB.
Can I encrease  memory for this process? Or it is encreasing automatically during fullfilg  some operation like I described?
Thanks,
Yampolka
