3.80. SessionDatabase

When storing sessions, specify the name of the directory or DBM file to use. The file extensions of .db or .gdbm (depending on the DBM implementation used) will be appended. If the default file-based sessions are used, it is the name of the directory.

Can be an absolute path name, if desired.

It is possible for multiple catalogs to share the same session file, as well as for multiple Interchange servers to serve the same catalogs. If serving a extremely busy store, multiple parallel Interchange servers can share the same NFS-based file system and serve users in a "ping-pong" fashion using the file-based sessions. On huge systems, the level of directory hashing may be changed. By default, only 48 * 48 hashing is done. See the source for SessionFile.pm.
