How to identify session size during runtime

I have a web application. I want to identify the session size at runtime. Is it possible?

Although I understand what you are trying to get at, session size is a meaningless term. A session holds references to objects in a collection that associates a String with an object reference, each entry in the collection is really quite small.

The impact on memory use of keeping references in a session depends entirely on what the references are used for, especially how many other references point to the object. Therefore there is no easy way to quantify how much memory is being "used."

We have Java performance tuning applications like JProfiler. Google it and you can find the session size after you access each page in your application
