no, and generally speaking, you should as most as possible avoid to maintain any state in any equipment. Persistence is the worst thing to maintain because (when it is possible), it costs a lot and is generally a sign of poor initial design.

Simply insert a cookie for your persistence and have any process and/or any machine be able to replace the first one at any time.
