In a FileStorage, each transaction record has a status byte, and that byte is set to a special "this transaction was packed" value the first time the transaction is in fact packed. That's how "the packing machinery" knows whether it's been asked to pack a transaction that's already been packed. The packing machinery has no idea _when_ a transaction was packed, it knows only whether a given transaction _has_ been packed. I suppose you could write a script to rummage through a Data.fs file, searching for the transaction with the largest tid that has been packed, or search for the transaction with the smallest tid that hasn't been packed. tids normally bear a close relationship to wall-clock time, but that's not necessarily true either. _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
