Determine How Many People Are Currently Using Your Web Site

The Web uses HTTP, a stateless protocol that rarely maintains a connection longer than a few seconds. As a result, even as users are reading through your web pages, they aren’t connected directly to your server. However, ASP.NET gives you a way to estimate how many people are using your web site at any given moment using timestamps. This information makes a great addition to a community site (e.g., a web discussion forum), and it can also be useful for diagnostic purposes.

Note

Ever wondered how many people are using your site right now? If you’re using ASP. NET’s personalization features, it’s remarkably easy to get a reasonable estimate.
