Re: PHP web clusters and session information

we have three front end web servers that serve millions of pages a month via apache2/php5, and 
use an NFS server to hold all session information. We had to do this as the 
front end servers are behind an SNMP balanced bigIP loadbalancer. we did some tests 
first and for us it proved faster to get the flat files from NFS than to get the 
session data from a shared DB (though I must add that the NFS mounted server is 
ALSO the DB server, so it was actually a good test).
