Session persistence is a process of saving the HTTP Sessions in case server is shutdown or server is restarted. In the absence of session persistence, a server start may lead to the losing of active user sessions. Persisting that information is the only way to ensure that that it won’t be lost. While you are using session persistence, you must know that it’s a temporary cache rather a storage location. Below listed are the points that endorse this assertion.
- A user may change web browsers, and sessions are almost connected either to a cookie or an SSL session that is open on only one web browser.
- Users who are actively using a site will likely make a request more often than once an hour if their session is missing, they’ll likely just consider the original one lost and create a new one.
- Sessions can and do time out eventually, invalidating the persisted session. Once reloaded, timed-out sessions are unusable and are simply garbage collected.
