Description: ASP State Service provides support for out-of-process session states for ASP. ASP has a concept of session state – a listing of values associated with the client session is accessible from ASP pages through the Session property. There are three options provided to store session data: In process; SQL database; and out-of-process. The ASP State Service stores session data out-of-process. The service communicates with ASP using sockets.
If this service is stopped or disabled, out of process requests will not be processed.
