Using Cookies w/ ASP.NET and 2+ worker processes

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I have an ASP.NET 4.0 web application which currently uses session variables to keep track of user information (login ID number, certain permission levels, etc). It really isn't a lot... maybe 4-5 variables at most.

I was thinking about switching to Cookies not just to free up server resources, but it's possible that I may increase the # of worker processes in the future. From what I've read, once you go beyond 1 worker process, you can no longer use Session State.

My question is, does increasing the # of worker processes have any adverse effects on cookies as well?
