OK, I have aspstate set up on SQL Server 2005 on a Windows Server 2003 machine. The website using it gets very high amounts of traffic and store a moderate amount of data (somewhere under 10kb). I’ve been getting into blocking issues intermittently. After looking around I found an article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939866) that matches my scenario exactly except it pertains to asp.net 2.0. Is this issue fixed in 3.5? if so, any idea what other senarios are known to cause blocking on aspstate database? My aspstate setup was done using the session state db setup tool, not a custom db.
