I take your suggestion to find a Catalog-based solution. I have set the subtransactions very low (100).
But I have got the following error: Traceback (innermost last): Module ZPublisher.Publish, line 119, in publish Module ZPublisher.mapply, line 88, in mapply Module ZPublisher.Publish, line 42, in call_object Module Products.ZCatalog.ZCatalog, line 348, in manage_catalogFoundItems Module Products.ZCatalog.ZCatalog, line 800, in ZopeFindAndApply Module Products.ZCatalog.ZCatalog, line 559, in catalog_object Module transaction._manager, line 110, in savepoint Module transaction._transaction, line 312, in savepoint Module transaction._transaction, line 309, in savepoint Module transaction._transaction, line 737, in __init__ Module ZODB.Connection, line 1034, in savepoint Module ZODB.Connection, line 543, in _commit Module ZODB.Connection, line 571, in _store_objects Module ZODB.Connection, line 1168, in store IOError: [Errno 28] No space left on device I am guessing that this process is using the /tmp directory which unfortunately was incorrectly sized at only 1.9Gb. Can someone confirm this? Then either I must find a way to change the /tmp size, or is there a solution through Zope? Thank you.
