There are an abundance of posts in regards to storing the Client Session data in the Windows Registry. http://forums.adobe.com/message/4302560 being the most related to my issue. (http://www.carehart.org/blog/client/index.cfm/2006/10/4/bots_and_spiders_and_poor_CF_perfo rmance has been a handy article as well.) However, none of them seem to behave the way mine does after ColdFusion and the application are told not to store values there. I updated my configurations, restarted the Cold Fusion services, delete the old session data via "reg DELETE HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Macromedia\ColdFusion\CurrentVersion\Clients", and confirm that everything is deleted. However, after I restart the server and check that place in my registry, there's still several GB of data in there that references sessions months old. What repopulates this? I deleted all of it, why does it come back? Anyone able to tell me what I'm not doing correctly?
Thanks in advance,
I wanted to bump this just once to give folks a second chance. Still fighting this issue and hoping someone could give me a hint or two.
Thank you for your time/views,
Just to be sure, before deleting the registry values, instruct ColdFusion not to store client sessions in the registry. You do so by navigating to
Server Settings >> Client Variables
in the ColdFusion Administrator. Select to store client variables in cookies, for example.
