There doesn't appaer to be any documentation that I could find that outlines how the new session cache feature works in FileMaker Server v12. The only information I have is from a DevCon session last year (WPE Under the hood) - from my notes the new session cache has a timeout of 3 minutes. This is what you're seeing in the Clients section of the Server Admin Console (previously CWP connections would connect/disconnect immediately and you would be hard pressed to see them appear in the Admin Console).
If the session remains idle for 3 minutes it's destroyed and a new session is created the next time you make a connection.

Thanks for the reply.
I did contact Vin Addala, the speaker who did the DevCon session to which you refer... but he would not share his notes, indicating they were for conference attendees only.
So, I am still thirsty for knowledge on the inner workings of CWP on FMS 12... if you ever come across any good resources, please share.
That DevCon session is one of the sessions up for nomination for DevCon 2012 Session Recording Release for March:
Polling closes on the 5th April and it needs a few more votes to get over the line!
