woops forgot to mention, the machine that I'm running zope on is
a P3-800 with 1GB of ram with dual western digital special edition
disks(8MB cache) in raid 1 .. the machine does quite a bit of other
stuff(ldap, postfix, apache, apache-ssl, mrtg, big brother etc)..
but the machine itself is no slouch, which is why I was so shocked
it took so long to load the zope pages. load on this box is gettin
outta control, it's been hovering in the 6-8 area for the past
few hours, gotta look to relocate my mrtg stuff to another machine
I guess. maybe the software raid is bogging it down ..
