I've increased the size of the 'main_db' cache to 10000 objects, but it 
doesn't help when the cache is empty.
Zope-2.7.2 has two severe memory leaks, transciense issues, see 
http://zope.org/Products/Zope/2.7.4/CHANGES.txt - so I don't think it's 
a good choice, but this is not my choice.

If you want to do some monitoring there is a heartbeat DTML document 
(http://europython-develop.zope.nl/heartbeat) which is 1 object in zope  
and you should measure how much time it takes to wake it up (it took 3 
seconds last time I tried which is a bit high in my opininon..). The 
entire front page has about 500 objects.
but if we put a squid in front of it, there won't be any problem.
