    Default Online Status of users

    I am creating a site that is going to use ASP/SQL to handle users. I was wondering if there is a way to check and see if users are online? (is the particular user logged into the website right now?) Can I do this without throwing large objects into sessions? For instance, one way i thought of doing it is for a database to be opened and maintained from the global.asa file. On session start, the DB is opened, and the user is entered into the DB. On session end, the listing is removed..<BR><BR>This solution will no doubt cripple my system&#039s performance. please advise, thanks.
