Zope is incredibly flexible. There are huge amounts of buttons to tune and when you forget to tune or tune in the wrong way, the result will be suboptimal. For large numbers of members, e.g. it is necessary to use BTrees based data structures (they have a hiearchical tree structure and are not flat as easier data structures). As someone else already said: you should not store huge objects as a single persistent object but chunk it into smaller blocks. The built-in "File" object already does this but may not be fully adequate for GIS specific access. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ 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 )
