Following are the basic advantages and disadvantages of using session.


- It stores user states and data to all over the application.

- Easy mechanism to implement and we can store any kind of object.

- Stores every user data separately.

- Session is secure and transparent from user because session object is stored on the server.


- Performance overhead in case of large number of user, because of session data stored in server memory.

- Overhead involved in serializing and De-Serializing session Data. Because In case of StateServer and SQLServer session mode we need to serialize the object before store.
