That is about as clear as I can explain it sorry. Look at what the
session helpers do to determine whether two requests are part of the
same session or not.

You need to start with that *then* figure out how to split each sequence
of requests now grouped into "session" down into whatever grouping you
define "page" to be.

Yes. There is simply no concept of "page" in HTTP.

It is a hard problem to even figure out with any accuracy what requests
are coming from the same client.
