No It doesn`t. At the Moment we run with single sessions on each frontend
we have rewitten most ob the code using sessions to store ther information 
in cockies. But thatīs not realy a good solution.

I didnīt find a way to use Tempstorage in zeo.     

   name temporary storage for sessioning

didnīt work. How do i Set up a temporarystorage in zeo.

Than maybe the sessioncode should be redesigned not to use ZODB as 
storage but store ther information in some different system maybe 
a RDMB or some other system able to handle the kind of usage.

The Performance decrase is there but the Problem is far deeper. If 
an read conflict isnīt resolved after three retries an Exception is 
raised an the request is aborted. And thats the real problem.

and nealy every system failed to do so. How do you implement this 
session affinity. Based on source IP. At the moment every large ISP 
uses multiple Proxyserver so every request comes from a different 
IP so the affinity doesnīt work for them. The Proxyserver provided by 
our Computing Center is also split on at least 8 Hosts, so everyone 
using this proxy would lose session infomation, getting very strange
