There are various content we serve through our servers without the user actually coming to our site. It seems silly to waste the resources to create a session when there is no use for it since the user isn't actually ON our site. Plus having an count of 50,000 guests online would look silly on top of it. lol
Some examples of what I mean...
Image that people use on their sites... underneath it all, it's not a static image... it's hitting the database because it's logging visitors to their site (sort of our Google Analytics uses a 1x1 image to track users).
http://ads.digitalpoint.com/ads.php is used for ad delivery to sites using Digital Point Ads...
Like I want to be able to use the framework for caching and database, but no need for a session for users not actually ON the site.
Looking for the equivalent of this in vBulletin:
