Was this keeping a fixed size for the object cache?

A fairer test (arguably) would be to increase the object cache size by a=20
factor of 7/3. That should give both tests roughly the same *total* memor=
usage. =20

(btw, all my production Zopes use -t2)

Object Cache performance should be very predictable in Zope 2.6.... the n=
activity monitor in Control Panel makes it very easy to tune this paramet=

In all earlier releases the Object Cache performance was far from predict=
