Session expiry question

Quick question regarding session timeouts. 


Suppose we have the default session time of 30 mins, and someone is inactive on our page for 4 hours.


Does that mea Analytics records 8 sessions? That is, does it count a new session every 30 minutes, even though nothing is being done on the page. 


Or is it just 1 session, and a new one is started when the page is active again?

Hi :-)

just one session, with a new one starting if the user resumes activity.
