Yup.  I've not really needed it so far, but if you need it, you need

Probably something like what Fernando had on the client:

<zodb_db temporary>
  mount-point /foo/bar
  # ZODB cache, in number of objects
  cache-size 5000
    server localhost:8999
    storage temp
    name zeotemporary
    var $INSTANCE/var
    # ZEO client cache, in bytes
    cache-size 20MB
    # Uncomment to have a persistent disk cache
    #client zeo1

And in the ZEO server's zeo.conf file:

%import tempstorage
<temporarystorage temp>
   name sessions

This resource is useful too:

I hear ya! ;-)

It'd be pretty obvious with an inordinate number of conflict errors in
the event log.  "inordinate" is relative, though, so I'm not sure what
to name as a number per minute for your app.  You can get a sense of
what's normal under contrived load by reading:

Yeah.  Probably OK to use a ZRDB connection, those are controlled
