Automatically Erase Ruby On Rails Session Files

Add to your cron:

1 */4 * * *     find /tmp/ -name "ruby_sess*" -cmin +600 -exec rm \{} \;

Deletes sessions over ten hours old every four hours. Otherwise your /tmp will end up overflowing. This only applies you use the file store method of session storage with Rails.
