Sessions are specific to the period when a specific browser is interacting 
with the site. When that browser is closed the session disappears. The 
values are stored on the server, and the session_id is used as a key to 
maintain state (or persistence of variables) between requests.

I don't know how they act in ASP. They are not site wide.

Check the documents to see if it is possible to access a count of the 
number of sessions. That would tell you how many connections you have. On 
the other hand there may be a server variable which will return that 
number, and you would avoid all that housekeeping.
