Hi there, Zagy and I have been discussing an issue that we have with fan-out setups and blobs.
So, assume the following setup: - A main ZEO server which has the blob storage locally available - A fan-out ZEO server which runs on a different machine and has 4 clients connected Now, the fan-out ZEO server pulls the blobs via ZEO RPC and stores them in a blob cache directory. The same is true for the 4 clients which also create a cache directory and store blobs there. We now have 5 cache directories on the second machine. The cache of the fan-out server will be approximately the combined set of blobs from the other clients. As all those 5 directories live on the same disk, we'd like them to be shared between the various clients. This currently doesn't work because we apply coarse grained locking to the whole directory instead of individual files. We propose to change this so that locking will become fine-grained and allow multiple ZEO clients to work on the same blob cache directory. Comments?
