ASPState stores session state information from websites. If you disabled that option in the website then you won't need the database at all.

Hi,

Application Level

Session State can also be disabled for all the pages of the application by specifying the same at the application level in the configurations section of the web.config file.


<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <pages enableSessionState="false" />
  </system.web>
</configuration>
