Report the progress of database packing

Registered by Mikko Ohtamaa on 2011-03-04

ZODB doesn't currently give indication for the packing process of a database. Since packing process may last several hours and might be hard to observe when it is ending, this information would be very useful for system administrators.

Whiteboard

I am not sure how ZODB does its packing and what is the architecture and elements involved.

Does it need a channel to communicate back from ZEO server to a client or is a callback enough?

(?)
