I would also like to know. I've had cases where Data.fs.index hasn't been touched in several days (the modified time stamp shows a date several days ago), on sites that are very active (in other words, its unlikely that nothing changed). If I then restart the zeo, I find that it takes a very long time, perhaps because it needs to reindex. I usually delete the old .index file (which appears to be stale) so that it can create a new one. Something happens and the zeo server stops writing to Data.fs.index. Unfortunately this very vague description is all I have right now, I've done no deeper investigation yet. regards, Izak _______________________________________________ For more information about ZODB, see the ZODB Wiki: http://www.zope.org/Wikis/ZODB/ ZODB-Dev mailing list - ZODB-Dev@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zodb-dev
