first of all, thank you for your reply

got it now. thanks a lot

so in order to achive the 'flush db' task for my xmlrpc service, i had setup 
a timer loop (reactor.callLater())
monitoring the last-touch timestamp, and if its old, say 30secs before, then 
i will flush the DB.

are there better way or i m on the right direction?
