By a rough estimate we run about 36K /hour into apache, and perhaps half of 
that from zope.
The munin process_memory plugin I installed yesterday indicates the we only 
consume about 600M of that, so I guess it looks more and more like this might 
be hour bottleneck.

Woha! Either I am wrong about our load, or you have a completely differnet 
type of site..

We do actually, have two. From a time we just "hadd to do something"!
Consolidation time...

Hm.. yes, that's the way we have been inclined.. just skip the whole ZEO 
thing, and go straight for Varnish integration. Lotts of old sinns that have 
to be paid off for that to work for everything however..

At some point Varnish url rewriting wil be good enough, and then we can cut 
apache out of it too..

thanks :)
