So don't do an update. Multiple updates to the same row block anyway
which is generally not something you want anyway.

If you INSERT into multiple partitions (by time -- say one per minute)
and TRUNCATE periodically (30 minute old partitions for 30 minute
expiry) it works much better. Expiring the session is quite fast as well
since they'll go away with the truncate.

Index on sessionid and time and grab the row with the most recent time.
