We are seeing a problem in our production environment with sessions not being reclaimed after the expiration. We are running Glassfish 3.1.2.2 with Jdk 1.7u51 on x86_64 servers.

I have looked at a heap dump and I see that most of the leaked sessions have a lastAccessedTime equal to creationTime. There are sessions that have lastAccessedTime over 2 weeks ago(last server restart) and the sessionTimeout is set to 90.

Is anyone aware of anything that could cause this behaviour?

Also I should mention we are running httpd with mod_jk from end.

I also see some stack traces that may be related.
