HI Dieter I had a look at z2.py (it's actually -r) so any way I tried (not too successfully).
I have zeo running with 2.4.1 I have a zss and 2 zeo clients. One running without -r switch and one running with -r In z2.py the -r switch is documented as follows -r Run ZServer is read-only mode. ZServer won't write anything to disk. No log files, no pid files, nothing. This means that you can't do a lot of stuff like use PCGI, and zdaemon. ZServer will log hits to STDOUT and zLOG will log to STDERR. Well when running a zeo client with -r switch results in no log files being written and the log is written to STDOUT, but the ZEO client is definately not in readonly mode ie I can create and modify documents. (It probably means it can;t cache to disk ;-) I need to track down where READ_ONLY flag is used. There isn't an occurrance with the ZEO code, so unless the READ_ONLY capability is implemented higher up in the transaction service, thenI think it isn't going to work. This document http://www.amk.ca/zodb/zodb-zeo.html which is linked to on the Zeo Product page actually mentions using Zeo client in readonly mode. I wonder if anyone has actually done it?
