Yes, it's the 6M pages a day.
Concerning that need for such a high number of pages/pdf : I'm
responsible for the development of the Direct Marketing module for
OpenERP. OpenERP (formerly TinyERP) uses reportlab to generate documents
(invoices, purchase orders, etc.) and until now it has perfectly fits
The client sponsoring the dm project is specialized in worldwide direct
marketing (paper advertising) and the 300x20000 pages is an average of
it's last month production. Each night, their actual system generates
documents for around 300 marketing campaigns, with one pdf by campaign
they manage and one campaign targeting around 2000 clients with usualy a
10 pages doc. The 20000 pages/pdf is what we should achieve but they
already had to produce up to 100000 pages/doc.
