Is it possible to configure Craft 3 to store session data in the database? On some other CMS's this can be enabled.
The reason I'm exploring this is because we're having an issue whereby PHP sessions get "locked up" due to a long-running request that forces all other PHP requests under the same session to be queued up until the prior ones complete (until the session files are written and released from their lock). This isn't ideal.
The problem is a common one amongst PHP apps that use file-based sessions. This article explains it in-depth:
