[torquedev] job vs. session

Hi all,

Exactly what is the difference between a job and a session? I couldn't
find any concrete documentation on them. I'm more interested in an
implementation oriented definition -- for Linux, it seems like jobs
are executed within processes, and sessions are denoted by PIDs. So
are sessions simply the execution containers of jobs? Can there be
multiple jobs per session or vice-versa?

My apologies if this is common knowledge.

Thanks,
Diwaker
