In this article:

Roché Compaan says the following:

"For an application like Plone an insertion rate of 250 objects per
second results in terrible performance if you consider that storing a
single document instance leads to close to 120 objects being inserted
in a single transaction. And this explains why you can hardly insert
more than 2 or 3 documents per second if you are uploading them into a
Plone site."

Why does storing a single document lead to close to 120 objects being
inserted? Is it something related to plone or is this the case for all
ZPT storing? Is it similarly true for the storing of DTML documents?
And how can I reduce the number of inserts in my non-plone mostly DTML
