Actually I used default store for session(as I understand it is file
In any case I don't want to have dependency from session store type.
I saw many sites with "Now [N] users on site" - so I think exists
standard way to define active session list.

the default session store for the next version of rails will be cookies.

You can follow the directions here:

you should also look at sql session store, which is a very good
replacement for ActiveRecord sessions:

I don't want to use database as session storage...
I thought about this issue and I think that I can extend "new" and
"delete" method of session(ActionController::Integration::Session)
1. in "new" method I will add new session to global session list;
2. in "delete" method I will remove session from this list.

At current point I don't know how to create variable that exists in
all application live cycle.
