Hi all,

Can anyone offer info about the performance tradeoff's of the different 
SessionType options?

The docs for the SessionType configuration directive suggest that the 
'File' type offers the best performance (and this is the default), but the 
rest of the documentation seems to assume we should use GDBM or DB_File.

Which really offers the best performance on a reasonably powerful server?

Also, the docs say "Don't use this!" about the DBI session type.  What is 
the danger there?

Thanks for any info.
