Session expirations are processed every Engine.backgroundProcessorDelay
* Manager.processExpiresFrequency seconds which by default is 10 * 6 =
60 seconds

I'd suggest reducing processExpiresFrequency first. If that is set to 1
and you still have issues then look at reducing backgroundProcessorDelay.
