Magento 1.9 var/session folder is full 2.5 million files are there, so the site is not working, if I remove some files from the session folder, the site is working for a few hrs, but after it was stuck, what is the alternate solution for this, rather than remove the session folders file?

Setup a cron job to delete session files older than 7 days

find /magento/var/session/sess* -type f -ctime +7 -exec rm -- {} \;
