You can monitor the numbers from the ps(1) output per jail,
see the other answers in this thread.
However, you should be aware of the fact that processes
share memory, even when running in different jails. For
example, most processes are linked against the standard
C library (libc), and its size is included in the size
of every process, as reported by ps(1) -- but the code
of the library is only loaded once into memory, i.e. it
is shared between processes, independent of jails.
