Ok then, right.  But you didn't really specify that in your initial requirements.

And I don't see a way to see a session expiry in access log ;-)

Ok, I give up. I was just making sure that you did get the correct meaning of my initial 

..although, when I think about it again :

- under Unix/Linux, there is a command "tail -f <filename>", which continuously watches

for any lines added to a file and displays them.  It doesn't seem to be very intensive in

terms of resources used.
- and on the other hand, you probably have a session expiration timeout.
So you could in theory say that you note the start of a session, and then update this each

time there is a new access to that same session.  And then periodically, you go through 
your table and for each session which you haven't seen since some time >= the session 
timeout, you consider it expired.

At which time of course I don't know if this is any simpler than the solution which you 
are exploring right now.
