Session overload

Added by Brad Schick over 10 years ago

This may be a rails issue, but I've the number of files in my redmine/tmp/sessions folder get huge, over 125,000 at one point. I occasionally delete files that are older than say 30 days, but that is a hassle. I could create a cron job but this just seems like a scalability design problem.

Anyone else hit this?

Do no reply mean no one else has seen this?

You will not have this issue once version 0.9 is released since it uses Rails cookie based session store instead of a file based session store by default.

You can also use cookie based sessions in version 0.8, edit your environment.rb

Comment out this line:
#config.action_controller.session_store = :PStore

And add this (change the secret variable to a random string of at least 30 characters):
config.action_controller.session = {
:session_key => '_redmine_session',
:secret => 'HIME4mJVLWygXtDIvrpZHIME4mJVLWygXtDIvrpZHIME4mJVLWygXtDIvrpZHIME4mJVLWygXtDIvrpZHIME4mJVLWygXtDIvrpZ'
}

I've been getting a lot of open file descriptor errors recently. I wonder if this is related? I am trying the fix listed here and will report back.
