A session is created (or reused if existing) whenever someone requests something from your server. It is used for keeping state information because the HTTP protocol is stateless in nature. What this means is that, as soon as a request is served, the connection is closed and the particular zoglair instance used for serving that request is removed from the server's memory. As a result, all information is lost.

Since there is no way to know the exact moment a user leaves your site (or closes his browser), a session is considered active for an arbitrary specified period, which is called “Session Timeout” and can be set in Authority settings.

Sessions are not kept permanently in this table. They are periodically deleted by a Cron task, when they get older than the “Cookie Life” setting in Authority.

There is not much you can do with this table in ACP, since sessions are automatically handled by zoglair core and all necessary information is given through the frontend.
