My impression is that FileStorage implements a 32-bit id-type-thingy
somewhere (look at ZODB docs, I think there is something about this
somewhere), which limits it (in addition to the Linux kernel ext2 fs limit),
to < 2GB.  With 7.5 GB, I'd use a more advanced storage like the new - well,
not quite released ;) - Berkeley (libdb3 based) storages, though I haven't
tried anything like that myself...  

Does anyone have any comments on the reliability of PartitionedFileStorage
in this regard as a temporary solution?  Is anyone using
PartitionedFileStorage in a production environment?

Hi Brian, hi all,

great to hear this.

Now comes a tricky question:

Suppose we are running a Linux Kernel 2.4.x and using the latest Python 2.x 
distribution. And supposing we can recompile all code if neccessary:

How large can a Data.fs grow until it breaks ?
We need to be able to store about 7.5 GBytes (note: Gigabytes) in the ZODB.
I 
would rather use the ZODB than a LocalFS ....

Thanks in advance 
- Holger
