Summary 0002338: sessions table gets huge, use automatic purge
Description The only way to reduce size of #sessions table is to run the maintainance action "purge sessions". If you have a very popular gallery and don't like to repeat maintainance actions every week, an automatic purge would be better.

Maybe some code in include/common like:

if (mt_rand(0,100) == 0)

Normally this is done automatically by php ini configuration.

I think these work fine. However beware of robots - every hit generates a new entry in the table

Here is what we have on a standard Debian (which runs many web servers)

; This is disabled in the Debian packages, due to the strict permissions
; on /var/lib/php5. Instead of setting this here, see the cronjob at
; /etc/cron.d/php5, which uses the session.gc_maxlifetime setting below.
; php scripts using their own session.save_path should make sure garbage
; collection is enabled by setting session.gc_probability
;session.gc_probability = 0
session.gc_divisor = 100

; After this number of seconds, stored data will be seen as 'garbage' and
; cleaned up by the garbage collection process.
session.gc_maxlifetime = 1440

We can say that Piwigo uses its own session.save_path because sessions are saved in the database. I have a serious doubt that the session table will ever be automatically purged.

On Piwigo Demo, we had 5M (millions) sessions and 99,999% where out of date.
