Description Konstantin Kolinko 2010-03-29 15:18:35 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. Login to the Tomcat Manager Application
2. Select a web application that has several sessions that are inactive for more than 2 minutes
3. In the text field next to the "Expire sessions" button print "2"
4. Press "Expire sessions"
5. Sample observed result:

OK - Session information for application at context path /myapp
Default maximum session inactive interval 30 minutes
<1 minutes:16 sessions
1 - <2 minutes:2 sessions
2 - <3 minutes:5 sessions
3 - <4 minutes:1 sessions
4 - <5 minutes:2 sessions
5 - <6 minutes:1 sessions
6 - <7 minutes:2 sessions
9 - <10 minutes:1 sessions
8 minutes:expired 0 sessions

Actually some sessions were expired (even if the above message prints "0").

Expected result:
All sessions with idle time > 2 minutes had to be expired.

The bug is in the following lines of ManagerServlet#sessions(PrintWriter, String, int):

Lines 1176-1179
                if (idle >= 0 && time >= idle*60) {

The patch would be to replace "idle++" with "expired++",
because "idle" is the time (in minutes) as submitted from the web form and "expired" is the counter.

Fixed in trunk (r931415), proposed for 6.0.x.

Tomcat 5.5.x is not affected by this issue: it does not have "Expire sessions" action in the Manager app.

This has been fixed in 6.0.x and will be included in 6.0.26 onwards.
