NAME ^

Catalyst::Plugin::Session::FastMmap - [DEPRECATED] FastMmap sessions for Catalyst

DEPRECATION ^

Note that this module is deprecated in favor of Catalyst::Plugin::Session.

It works under Catalyst 5.5, but might not work in future versions. Using Catalyst::Plugin::Session should be a small change, since the API is mostly backwards compatible.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Catalyst 'Session::FastMmap';
    
    MyApp->config->{session} = {
        expires => 3600,
        rewrite => 1,
        storage => '/tmp/session'
    };

    $c->session->{foo} = 'bar';
    print $c->sessionid;

DESCRIPTION ^

Catalyst::Plugin::Session::FastMmap is a fast session plugin for Catalyst that uses an mmap'ed file to act as a shared memory interprocess cache. It is based on Cache::FastMMap.

EXTENDED METHODS

finalize
prepare_action
setup

Sets up the session cache file.

METHODS

session
uri

Extends an uri with session id if needed.

    my $uri = $c->uri('http://localhost/foo');

CONFIG OPTIONS

rewrite

If set to a true value sessions are automatically stored in the url; defaults to false.

storage

Specifies the file to be used for the sharing of session data; defaults to /tmp/session.

Note that the file will be created with mode 0640, which means that it will only be writeable by processes running with the same uid as the process that creates the file. If this may be a problem, for example if you may try to debug the program as one user and run it as another, specify a filename like /tmp/session-$>, which includes the UID of the process in the filename.

expires

Specifies the session expiry time in seconds; defaults to 86,400, i.e. one day.

SEE ALSO ^
