ZODB guys, I have discovered the following.
db.dbRoot is the root of my database and 'accounts' is a key. I simply want to set a timestamp for when a user logs in. I make the timestamp persistent by assigning the database key to a variable and back again as in the following code. accounts = db.dbRoot['accounts'][accountKey] accounts[accountKey]['last-login-time'] = int(time.time()) db.dbRoot['accounts'][accountKey] = accounts transaction.commit() I have discovered that each time this code is executed, it increases the size of my database by about 800,000 bytes. Even though I suspect that it writes all of the accounts, the data in all of the accounts is not anywhere near 800,000. It is about 2k. I have been googling the ZODB and need to learn. Your answers on this list are pretty much over my head, but for now could you please tell me how to save about 50 bytes of information without the additional 799,950? Thanks alot.
