Re: [Zope] Building a fast, scalable yet small Zope application

2009-04-27 Thread Morten W. Petersen

 I suggest you experiment a bit. Create 100 million objects, and do
 some of the actions you are planning to do on them.
   

Right.  I'm thinking of taking the time to try a simple SQL based 
implementation,
as well as one in ZODB.  I need to learn more about high-speed Zope 
programming
as well as keeping my SQL skills up to date so.  :-)

 I doubt that it would make a difference. The Undo functionality comes

 much a complete rewrite.
   

OK.  Well, I'm concerned about how much a database would grow.  I'm 
thinking if
I use one BTree for all the entries, would the database grow just a 
little or a lot when
you start getting into the millions of entries when inserting one small 
item?

 and using BTree structures, maybe segmenting objects into different groups
 (folders) to further speed up lookups.
 

 Yes, in my experience putting small objects in to BTree structures is
 quite fast. You may be talking about BTreeFolders, and in that case I
 don't know, I haven't done any sort of performance testing on those, I
 have used BTrees directly though, and that was fast. I haven't
 compared to SQL, but others have, and ZODB itself seems according to
 those tests quite fast. We know Plone slows everything down immensly
 in any case.

 I don't know if BTrees get slow when they get very big, so you would
 need to test that.
   

Mm.  Yes, Plone is a bit sluggish, that's why I want to write a purely 
Zope-based app.

Yeah, I'll have to try different storage strategies in the ZODB, to see 
if a BTreeFolder
containing BTrees in the [0-9|A-Z|a-z] ranges would do, or if I need to 
partition it
up further with BTreeFolders containing BTreeFolders.

On the one hand I'm concerned about lookup speed, on the other about 
speed of
inserts and how much the entire database will grow inserting a  1 KB 
object.

  Should I consider using the ZCatalog for faster lookups?
 

 Maybe. You probably need to not only store the objects in BTrees, but
 also somehow have indexes. These you do by storing the values you want
 to search on in BTrees as well. The ZCatalog does this in a
 configurable way for you, so if you need configurability, yes. If not,
 it's probably faster to make your own indexes with your own BTrees.
   

Mm.  I guess I could be OK with one index, it being the id/path of the 
object.  However,
it would be nice to build for the future and include the ability to 
search all objects.  Maybe
a combination of the two could work.

Peter Bengtsson skrev:
 From experience I find that BTrees are very fast to write to and pick
 out items from. Even in the millions. (Never gone into the tens of
 millions or further)
 Also, when it comes to browsing stuff I find SQL faster and easier to
 work with. An added advantage of a RDBMS is that you get the indexing
 seamlessly built in (no need to bridge zbrain.getObject()) and it
 makes it easier to optimize and figure out which indexes help and
 which indexes slow you down which is something that is far from
 obvious with a ZCatalog approach.
   

Right.  But wouldn't profiling indexes in Zope be as easy as wrapping the
index search method in a function that does time.time before and after
the search?  :-)

 I've followed this thread with interest since I have a Zope site with

 many tricks to make it work.

 Roche Compaan wrote these great pieces on ZODB, Data.fs size and
 scalability at 
 http://www.upfrontsystems.co.za/Members/roche/where-im-calling-from/catalog-indexes
 and 
 http://www.upfrontsystems.co.za/Members/roche/where-im-calling-from/fat-doesnt-matter
   

Thanks for those links, interesting stuff.  :-)

 My own in-house product is similar to GoogleAnalytics. I have to use a
 cascading BTree structure (a btree of btrees of btrees) to handle the
 volume. This is because BTrees do slow down the more items they
 contain. This is not a ZODB limitation or flaw - it is just how they
 work.
   

Something like Google Analytics I'd be interested in too, it wasn't the 
aim for this
thread but something that's been bobbing around in my head.  Is this 
something
you're thinking of releasing or is it too good/bad to share?

[Zope] Building a fast, scalable yet small Zope application

2009-04-25 Thread Morten W. Petersen
Hi,

I'm considering building a large scale, but small in features site.  It 
will contain
lots of small objects (millions, tens of millions, hundreds of millions) 
of objects,
where each object has a couple of strings and maybe some other light 
attributes.

So far, I've been contemplating disabling undo (if that's possible), and 
using
BTree structures, maybe segmenting objects into different groups 
(folders) to
further speed up lookups.  Scalability is also an issue, should I 
consider using
RelStorage?  Should I consider using the ZCatalog for faster lookups?

Has anyone else developed something similar?  Are there Zope product
examples out there that fit the bill?

Hi Catherine,

well.. I don't have much experience running SSL on Zope itself, but
we use Apache in front and that works well.

You'll just have to figure out some RewriteRule directives for
Apache and configure it.  Most SSL providers (that I've seen anyway)
do have clear instructions on how to go about SSL when Apache is involved.

Undoer is a product/patch that enables transactions to be undone based

separate changes that would be cumbersome to undo the usual Zope way and 
no recent (enough) backups are available. See the Undo tab in the Zope

 I'm dispayed to hear this. :(  The old use of __builtins__.get_transaction
 should be deprecated and supported for a period of time.  If it isn't,
 then this is *definately* a bug.

Re: Get rid of configure/make? (was Re: [Zope-dev] Re: SVN: Zope/trunk/ Merge philikon-zope32-integration branch. Basically, this branch entails:)

2005-11-05 Thread Morten W. Petersen
 I wasn't arguing that configure/make was hard to use.  I'm arguing
 that it's something extra to maintain and is just silly.
 
 It's main benefit is that it leverages a familiar pattern, but
 I'm not convinced that it's worth it. Also, as tools like rpm and
 deb become more widely used, I'm not sure how familar the configure/make
 dance is.  Other than Python and Zope, I never use configure/make anymore.

My experience is that .rpm and .deb packages are poorly maintained, so
if someone is serious about using Zope and related products, downloading
and installing from source is the only way to go.

We also have tools internally that depend on the configure/make dance,
and I'm sure others who put up a lot of Zope instances do as well..  :)

Re: [Zope-dev] Problems adding many objects

2005-09-26 Thread Morten W. Petersen
Chris,

the implementation looks like this

def manage_add_issue(self, id=None, title='', contents='',
state='', type='', referrer='', format=None,
REQUEST=None):
Add an Issue.
if id is None:
id = self.get_unique_id()
issue_ = issue(id, title, contents, state, type,
   creator=self.get_user().get_id(),
   owner=self.get_user().get_id(),
   format=format or
self.get_user_preferences().issue_format)
self._setObject(id, issue_)
self.order.append(issue_.id)
self.order = self.order
issue_ = self[id]
issue_.version = self.get_issue_dealer().version
try:
self.index_object()
except AttributeError:
pass
if referrer and REQUEST is not None:
REQUEST.RESPONSE.redirect(referrer)
print 'redirect'
else:
if REQUEST is not None:
if self.inCMF():
print 'admin url'
return self.get_admin_url()
else:
print 'manage_main'
return self.manage_main(self, REQUEST)
else:
print 'returning issue', issue_
return issue_

and before returning none, it says 'returning issue' on stdout.

 Hi,

 I've created a script that imports XML into the ZODB, using regular  TTW
 methods - and all is fine, except for when I import large files, with
 many objects.

 After about 288 objects, the import fails when the method that adds an
 object in the ZODB returns None, instead of the object it added.  From
 what I can tell, the added object is not None before it is  returned, but
 the name object, set via the expression

   object = self.manage_add_issue(...)

 is None.  So it looks like somewhere between 'return issue_' in
 manage_add_issue and the expression above, the object is lost.

 Any ideas what could be happening here?  I've managed to work  around it
 for now, but it is interesting nonetheless.

 It doesn't say returning issue, None?  My guess is that the if 
 request is not none branch is called and it goes that way.  But  there's
 no way to know for sure without running it.

It says 'returning issue issue at x'

 This is a good place to use the Python debugger...  as the first line 
 of this method, insert import pdb; pdb.set_trace(), then start up 
 Zope in the foreground (runzope or zopectl fg), then cause the method 
 to be invoked through a browser.
 
 On the console you will see a pdb prompt.  You can step through the 
 code by using n.  To print the value of a variable type p 
 variablename, to step in to a function call press s.  When  you're
 finished, press c to continue or q to quit.  This will be  the
 fastest way to see what's happening in this method.

Yep, I'll have a go at this later.  Thanks for describing the debug
process.  :)

It's the client that's hanging.  The first time I tested it, it was as a

Now when I try setting up a ZEO server/client version 2.8 with python

[Zope-dev] Re: Renaming a product

2003-06-18 Thread Morten W. Petersen
 Somebody correct me please, if I'm wrong, but
 
 1. tinkering with __class__ is the only way to do this.
 2. you can not tinker with __class__ of an ExtensionClass, i.e. all 
 Persistent objects.

It's not easily doable, no.  I settled on converting each instance
(copying properties) from the old product name to the new, and
it worked.

Thanks for your help everybody.  :)

I've been playing a bit with the monitor_client (ZServer/medusa), and it

 Because of that you try to minimize the Designer's time by providing a nice 
 tool (UML tool, such as ObjectDomain). Then you try to minimize the Python 
 Programmers time by auto-generating the framework and only make him to fill 
 the methods with life. Now, because we have a UML diagram, the DTML 
 programmer can start right away with programming the DTML and HTML around 
 the data/functional model, since the API is clear. This way you optimized 
 several things:

If DTML programming / interface design is so simple, and cheap, why not
automate it?  (Strike two for low cost development).

I've been trying to save some time (and my fingers!) by building a RAD
framework, named the WarpFramework [1], which deals with the low level
complexity of properties and how to display / manipulate them in addition
to other common programming tasks.. this could perhaps blend in easily..

Say for example that we could provide the odd designer with the
possibility of simply pushing widgets and displays (generated
automatically of course) around the page, and changing colors and
backgrounds (CSS); then we have a tool that designers would love as well.

 - Minimize the time of the expensive people.

Minimize the time of people.  Period.  :-)

. o O ( Many small rivers make.. )

 - Minimize the development time, since many people can work parallel.

..lessen the complexity and add to robustness.

 - Because of the above, you minimize risk and money spent. And voila, you 
   have a well functioning RAD team.*

I'm not sure, I've fired off another email to get a clarification.

While we're one the topic, I just read an article [1] over at Kuro5hin

discusses the impacts of Free Software and relates it to Free Trade, talks
about barriers and other interesting things.

From the practical point of view, being able to use GPL-ed software with
Zope is a Good Thing (TM) for most developers.

Another thing is that some people / companies may be reluctant to add
signifcant modules that could be included in the Zope core, as they will
not get the same level of recognition for their work as Digital Creations
would.

For me personally, a Zope license without the advertising clause would
motivate me, as the 'protection barrier' / 'restriction' / 'attribution
issue' wouldn't be there;  I have a ton of things I'd like to change in
Zope and add to Zope, and as time goes by, the who-gets-credit-issue will
undoubtedly be raised again, if we're so lucky that Digicool decides to
open up Zope for read/write CVS access.

Yes, you can distribute a GPL-compatible licensed code with GPL

Another question is whether or not it's legal to use GPL-ed Zope

That is a hard question.  I don't know whether Zope is just an interpreter
or contains facilities that, in effect, the user program links with.
It makes a difference.
 
If the former, you can run programs on Zope regardless of their
licenses.
 
If the latter, then in general, you can't take someone's GPL-covered
code and combine it with Zope, because the Zope license is
GPL-incompatible.
 
If someone wrote a GPL-covered program specifically for Zope, you are
pretty safe taking that as implicit permission to combine it with
Zope.  But it would be better for them to give explicit permission.


Implicitly yours,

[Zope-dev] ZPL and GPL licensing issues

2001-06-20 Thread Morten W. Petersen

Hi there,

we @ thingamy are considering changing our license to a ZPL-ish one [1] to
better serve our clients' needs.  However, some of the (Zope) products
we've developed may need to rely on GPL'ed code, or needs to be
incorporated within it, and the 'obnoxious advertising clause'
seemingly puts a stop to it..

The ZPL is listed as a license incompatible with the GPL, but it doesn't
really say clearly what the reason is, as far as we can figure, it's
because of the advertising clause.

Anyways, I'm wondering if any of you have encountered the same issue
developing Zope products and any solutions towards it.

Some interesting articles, food for thought:

[Zope-dev] Non-undoable storage

2001-06-12 Thread Morten W. Petersen

Hia guys,

during testing of a mail product I've discovered that the Data.fs file may
bloat considerably after storing 50 messages.  Packing the database will
reduce the Data.fs file to 20 MB (from 40 MB).  Another thing is that
storing 50 messages takes a *long time* on a 600Mhz 256 MB RAM system.

The thing that struck me was that transactions may cause a lot of
overhead, both in database size and for execution speed, so, the thing I'm
wondering about is if there exists a non-undoable storage, or something
similar that doesn't support transactions..

Another thing I noticed BTW, is that retrieving 500 messages and packing
the database on every 50th message (all messages retrieved during one
request) would lead to off the charts memory usage, the process ended up
using 700 MB of RAM (had to add swap files as the footprint grew!)

Cheers,

Morten

dtml-widget select options=[1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13]
selected=[1,3,5,7,9,11,13

This could be done:

dtml-widget select options=_.range(1,14,1)
selected=_.range(1,14,2)

Like this (with the DTML var tag):

dtml-var [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]

dtml-var _.range(1,11)

Thanks  cheers,

Morten

[Zope-dev] ZCatalog features

2001-04-28 Thread Morten W. Petersen

Hia guys,

A couple of comments and questions about the ZCatalog:

Is it possible to pass an argument to the catalog so that returned brains
would instead be actual objects?

Given that we have to manually join search results, because ZCatalog
doesn't support ORs etc (for FieldIndexes), wouldn't it be useful to have
some sort of tool that could take a set of results, and return a result
with only unique values?

Cheers,

Morten

[Zope-dev] Ensuring 'freshness' of dynamic pages (slightly offtopic)

2001-03-11 Thread Morten W. Petersen

Hi guys,

I've been trying to ensure that documents from a certain website are
always fresh, that is, every request for a new page must be validated
before the client sees it.

I've tried using these HTTP Cache-control directives:

no-cache
no-store
max-age (1)
must-revalidate

but no such luck.  If I for example specify 'Check against server: Never'
in IE, the pages are cached, no matter what.

Is it possible to ensure that pages are always fresh, even if it is
specified on the client side that the client should never try to
retrieve a 'fresher' page?

I've been contemplating a new solution, which is to append a string
like ?ensure_freshness=02349025180.12 (some random, unique id) on each
link, but that's not a thing which I wish to do now, at such a late
stage in the project.

Also, it strikes me that it isn't possible to specify multiple
cache-control directives with the current HTTPRequest implementation,
am I missing something here, or is this a bug / missing feature?

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Morten

Will the new data be 'made ready for indexing' before it is compared to the

way before it compares it to what is already stored?

I'm wondering because it would be significant overhead to 'make a data field
of 100MBs into an index-like value' and then compare it to what already
exists in the ZCatalog.

[Zope-dev] ZCatalog hackery

2001-03-01 Thread Morten W. Petersen

Hi guys,

I've got a problem with ZCatalog.  I've got plenty of large
objects, ranging from 100KB to 100MB in size.  Needless to
say, these take up a lot of processor time when indexed by
the ZCatalog.

Now, these object have to be moved from time to time, only
moved, so that one or two of the related columns and indexes
are affected (the path and the parent container id); is
there a way to go around this so that those two, the
one column and the index are updated, and not, let's say
the indexed body (which is 100KB - 100MB in size) ?

Thanks,

[Zope-dev] ConflictErrors and how to handle them

2001-02-19 Thread Morten W. Petersen

Hi guys,

I've been struggling with a problem, namely ConflictErrors.

At times, a long-running process may add 100, 1000, 1
objects to a single folder.  Under this process, several
ConflictErrors may be raised, but they are captured, and
the transaction committed again.  Problem solved.

However, the other side of the problem is that regular
requests, from other users, may be be aborted, and as a
result the user is presented with a Zope Error screen,
which says ConflictError.

If I've understood this correctly, it is because the
ZODB connection is hosed, and innocent reads trigger
ConflictErrors.

So, I'm wondering about turning up the number of Exceptions
each request may handle (it's 3 now, right?) and just
hope that the exception isn't raised more than 10-20
times.

Where can I increase the number of accepted exceptions
per request?

Any thoughts on the solution itself?

Cheers,

Morten

The ideal solution would be to use an object that lives in the ZODB, I wonder

the counter 'packed' while retaining 'object history' information on all other
objects.

In any case, I think it's possible to implement a file-locking module,
that locks the file using a .lock extension (writing the pid of the
locking process to that file) or something like that..  Which should
work on Linux and Windows (and most other OS')

Should I toss up a Wiki?

| self._value = self._value + number
| return self._value
| 
| ...not be thread safe?

I'm not sure whether the code above is thread safe or not.  ThreadSafeCounter was
made because

I don't know enough about Zope internals to determine whether
or not the counter would return unique values, nor do I
know enough about threads to be completely sure that it
would, every time.

File locking is a simple concept, and easy to understand.

As I've understood it, two threads serving requests have a copy each of the
database, and only when changes are committed are they reflected in
the database.  Therefore, two requests created at the same time could
get an identical copy and therefore and identical value.

..so, it basically boils down to the fact that it's simple to use file locking.

Cheers,

Morten

[Zope-dev] LoginManager and ZPatterns

2001-01-29 Thread Morten W. Petersen

Hi fellow zopers,

I don't know if it's a bug or feature, but whenever I try
to access parental objects from a user object in python
code, I can't seem to find anything.

That is, whenever I call acl_users.getItem('user123').getParentNode()
(the acl_users is a LoginManager instance) it returns None.  But,
if it's called from DTML, with exactly the same expression, it returns
the containing object...

Could someone shed some light on this?

Thank you.

[Zope-dev] How to avoid ConflictErrors ?

2001-01-28 Thread Morten W. Petersen

Hi zopers,

I'm having problems with a product I'm developing.  The product is part of the
ZopeGUM package, the GUM product.  If you have a look in gum.py in that
product, you can see a method named _retrieve_messages, which can at
times store enourmous amounts of objects and data in one transaction.

Now, if I access the GUM instance at the same time as this method is being
called, I may either get a ConflictError raised in the page, or in the
Zope debug output. 

I've read all the posts I could find regarding ConflictErrors, and they
mention that careful programming could help in avoiding these exceptions.
I'm assuming that this applies only to whenever two threads are trying
to *modify* the same object; and frankly, I can't see where I'm modifying
any objects, unless modifying one object, an rfc822_message instance in
a message_container instance also somehow modifies the message_container.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks  cheers,

Morten

[Zope-dev] AttributeError when adding ZClass product (PortalMembership)

2001-01-26 Thread Morten W. Petersen

Hi guys,

I have a problem with a product.  This product, let's call it product
SuperSecret, adds a number of folderish objects to the new instance
when it is created.  Now, if we name the SuperSecret product instance for
a, and the class instance that raises the AttributeError b, I
will show you what happens:

I am at the root folder of the Zope instace, and select the SuperSecret
entry from the Products list.  There I enter the relevant information,
and submit the form.  But then, the SuperProduct raises an exception
when the manage_add_some_class function tries to add the new b instance
to the a instance.  (No exception is raised when the offending line
which tries to access the Control_Panel via the b instance  acquisition
is commented out).

The manage method, which looks like this:

def manage_add_b(self, id, description, REQUEST=None):
"Add an instance of the b class."

self._setObject(id, b(id, description))
#get_transaction().commit()
Shared.utils.install_authentication_folder(self[id])

which calls an external function, which looks like this:

def install_authentication_folder(container):


container.Control_Panel.Products.PortalMembership.doInstall(folder=container, 
REQUEST={})

which raises an AttributeError that looks like this:

   Zope Error

   Zope has encountered an error while publishing this resource. 

   Error Type: AttributeError
   Error Value: Control_Panel

   [...]

  File /home/morten/Zope/lib/python/Products/rs/rs.py, line 56, in manage_add_a
  File /home/morten/Zope/lib/python/Products/SuperSecret/a.py, line 168, in 
__init__
(Object: CatalogAware)
  File /home/morten/Zope/lib/python/Products/SuperSecret/b.py, line 61, in 
manage_add_b
(Object: CatalogAware)
  File /home/morten/Zope/lib/python/Products/SuperSecret/Shared/utils.py, line 
211, in install_authentication_folder
(Object: CatalogAware)
  AttributeError: (see above)

Now, I guess this could be because the new instance isn't aware of it's
surroundings, but I've tried to manually commit the transaction (which
could help?), but obviously didn't...  =)

I guess it could be a solution to call a number of methods after the
product instance is added, but that's a bit too hackish for me.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Morten

[Zope-dev] Calling HTMLFiles

2001-01-18 Thread Morten W. Petersen

Hi,

I'm having difficulties calling an HTML file from python..

Here's the code:

[...]
from events import conflicting_events

calendar_event_add_redirect = HTMLFile('calendar_event_add_redirect',
globals())
manage_add_calendar_event_form = HTMLFile('calendar_event_add', globals())
conflicting_events_dialogue = HTMLFile('calendar_event_conflicting_events_dialogue', 
globals())

# These two expand into seconds
expand_hour = lambda x: x * 60 * 60
expand_minute = lambda x: x * 60

def manage_add_calendar_event(self, title='', note='',
alarm=0, start=0, end=0,
priority=0, status=0,
REQUEST=None, RESPONSE=None):
"Add an instance of the calendar_event class."

new_id = str(self.get_unique_id())

if REQUEST:

alarm = expand_hour(REQUEST['alarm_hour']) + \
expand_minute(REQUEST['alarm_minute'])

start = expand_hour(REQUEST['start_hour']) + \
expand_minute(REQUEST['start_minute'])

end = expand_hour(REQUEST['end_hour']) + \
expand_minute(REQUEST['end_minute'])

title = REQUEST['title']
note = REQUEST['note']
priority = REQUEST['priority']
status = REQUEST['status']


conflicting_events_ = self.check_timespan(
self.getParentNode().getParentNode().id,
self.getParentNode().id, self.id,
start, end)

if conflicting_events_:

return conflicting_events_dialogue(self, REQUEST)
[...]

Now, if there are any conflicting events, the HTMLFile is returned, with
some parameters passed along.

What I'm wondering about is how can I pass the variables defined
in the REQUEST so that they can be looked up with dtml-code in
the conflicting_events_dialogue?

And doing it without raising KeyErrors on DTMLMethod that are
called from within the conflicting_events_dialogue?

Thanks.

Re: [Zope-dev] ZCatalog and 'fuzzy logic'

2001-01-10 Thread Morten W. Petersen

 I do not think that "fuzzy logic" is strongly related to "regexp-like".
 Anyway.
 
 Fuzzy searching often means "finding matches with characters omitted,
 replaced or inserted".

It seems I misunderstood the term fuzzy logic myself.  Fuzzy logic means
if I search for a word, for example 'programmer', it will return matches
to the words 'program', 'programming','programmable' etc.

I.e., it will somewhat intelligently return words that are similar in
what they mean, using grammar rules (chopping off endings of words and
making them match others).

Hmm.

Cheers,

Morten
