This is only a discussion.How much space does each active user consume in the database? The assumption is that when a user is active the user is able to log into the SharePoint server.If a user is not active, then only the history data would be left on the database.

  • What do you base this assumption on? And what do you mean by "when a user is active, the user is able to log into the SharePoint server."? If a user is active, s/he is already logged in. This question does not make sense.

  • Sorry, but you really need to provide some more context about the issue and what you are trying to achieve. How do you "add a user"?

    I have so many users in my active directory - How many? | I am adding user to my sharepoint site - How? Add them to a group? Add an AD group to a SP group? | Then there will be entries in sharepoint content db - What entries? In what content db? | I want to know how much space(in bytes or kb's) in database it needed - Why does it matter? Why is it an issue? Are you short in SQL db space? If so, the whole user management probably takes less space than an uploaded PowerPoint deck with an embedded video. Why the concern? Is is just academic? Or is there a business limitation?

The only significant space usage is from the User Profile Application Service, which uses an estimated 1MB per user. Profile sync is another 600KB and social tagging will add 0.009MB per tag, comment or rating.
