Subject Re: Q: how to implement a network connection per user session
Date Sun, 07 Nov 2004 02:57:14 GMT
i am not much of a mp hacker but as I understand it,  one problem with
making per-session persistent connections would be that there is no guarantee
that future requests in the same apache session will be handled by the same
mod_perl process.  This means that any backend that provided what you are asking
for would need to be shared among all the mp processes.  The new request would
check its session ID, then connect to the db session multiplexor and provide the
session credential.

Contact me off-list if you'd like to sponsor creation of this daemon,
if it hasn't been
done already I could set it up.
