What are the practices followed, tools used to measure session memory requirement per user?

Do you mean memory to manage sessions or how much memory is used in a session?

Unmesh, i doubt that you mean how much memory is uses by a session server.
So I am going to concentrate on the next version.

Lets see for example.
A person loads a page
Logs in to
makes a post top
makes a comment to
does not like the answer from someone else to his post at and blogs about it to

if this is what you mean than its a bit difficult to measure then to measure how much memory is used in creating a session.

Let us know which one do you think it is so we may be able to comment on it.

Get a load simulator, and start measuring your heap size. If nothing else, top(1), prstat(1M), or Windows Task Manager will tell you how big the process(es) is/are.
