I'm looking for a piece of code that will return the session object size. Any ideas?
Thanks.

Due to the basic structure of Java, you are never going to be able to get the in-memory size of a session. If all of your session storage objects are serializable, you could write the session to a file or a ByteArrayOutputStream and see how large the serialized form is.
