For all who are interested in breaking database size barriers without
moving to Oracle or Berkeley Storage, here's something to try out.
I *highly* recommend you back up Data.fs before installing.
What is known to work:
- Reads and writes of logical files greater than 3 GB on versions of
Linux that support only 2 GB files.
- Undo and packing.
- Fast random reads and writes.
- Using simple binary concatenation to move back to a standard single
- Using PartitionedFile completely independent of Zope or ZODB.
What has not been tested, but will very likely work:
- Putting the partitions on different physical devices. (Poor man's
RAID :-) )
What couldn't be tested by my limited resources:
- Platforms other than Linux.
- Running this on a busy Zope site. (No, www.zope.org is not running
PartitionedFileStorage. :-) )
BTW to all in the U.S., Happy Thanksgiving!
