"You should be aware that even when not in use, sessions carry some overhead for an application. You can squeeze a little bit more performance out of your pages if you turn off sessions on pages that do not use it. Also, setting session state to read-only can also optimize pages that read but do not write data to sessions. Configure sessions in this fashion by adding an attribute to the @Page directive in one of these two ways:"
<%@ Page EnableSessionState="false" %>
<%@ Page EnableSessionState="readonly" %>
