There is probably a way to answer your first question, but there is no
answer to the second.
Remember that a web transaction has a very short lifetime. The browser
asks for a page, the server returns it, the connection closes. The
connection is not persistent. Even requests for images on that same page
come in as new connections, completely separate from any other
transaction. That's why we have to use session IDs.
Thus, at any given time, it is impossible to know how many people are
actually looking at any given page.
