ASP.NET provides In-Process and Out-of-Process state management.  In-Process stores the session in memory on the web server.  This requires the a "sticky-server" (or no load-balancing) so that the user is always reconnected to the same web server.  Out-of-Process Session state management stores data in an external data source.  The external data source may be either a SQL Server or a State Server service.  Out-of-Process state management requires that all objects stored in session are serializable.

Session Management can be achieved in two ways

1)InProc
2)OutProc

OutProc is again two types
1)State Server
2)SQL Server


InProc
Adv.:
1) Faster as session resides in the same process as the application
2) No need to serialize the data

DisAdv.:
1) Will degrade the performance of the application if large chunk of data is stored
2) On restart of IIS all the Session info will be lost


State Server
Adv.:
1) Faster then SQL Server session management
2) Safer then InProc. As IIS restart
won't effect the session data


DisAdv.:
1) Data need to be serialized
2) On restart of ASP.NET State Service session info will be lost
3)Slower as compared to InProc


SQL Server
Adv.:
1) Reliable and Durable
2) IIS and ASP.NET State Service
restart won't effect the session data
3) Good place for storing large chunk of data


DisAdv.:
1) Data need to be serialized
2) Slower as compare to InProc and State Server
3)Need to purchase Licensed
version of SQL Server

The following list describes the available session state modes:

InProc mode : which stores session state in memory on the Web server. This is the default.

StateServer mode : which stores session state in a separate process called the ASP.NET state service. This ensures that session state is preserved if the Web application is restarted and also makes session state available to multiple Web servers in a Web farm.

SQLServer mode : which stores session state in a SQL Server database. This ensures that session state is preserved if the Web application is restarted and also makes session state available to multiple Web servers in a Web farm.

Custom mode : which enables you to specify a custom storage provider.

Off mode : which disables session state.

You can specify which mode you want ASP.NET session state to use by assigning a SessionStateMode enumeration values to the mode attribute of the sessionState element in your application's Web.config file. Modes other than InProc and Off require additional parameters, such as connection-string values
