A ZODB "Connection" has the method "cacheGC()" which you can call
to start a cache garbage collection.

As others already pointed out, it is implicitely called during
large catalog operations -- controlled by the so called
"subtransaction threshold".

Note that in early versions of ZODB 3.4, there was a bug preventing
the call to "cacheGC" at "subtransaction" boundaries.
