Our CMS instance is using "In Process" session state and CD instance is using "Out of Process" session state. We have configured it for private session state using Sitecore ASP.NET Session State Provider for Redis. Whenever a new session getting created in CD site both shared and private session keys getting created in Redis like below:-



I have below doubts:-

  1. If I have configured for private session state, why I am seeing shared session keys?
  2. In one of our non production environment I am seeing 20K such keys. I am doubting if these are getting cleaned up or not. So I want to understand how these gets cleaned up?

I raised a ticket to Sitecore for the same. I have received and verified that answer. On session end, its data is being committed to xConnect and removed from the session storage.
