View Full Version : Post your Maverick bootcharts or boot times! (no attachments please)

The purpose of this thread is to serve as an informative measuring stick for any and all boot improvements over Lucid during the Maverick development cycle.

In order to participate, just install bootchart through apt-get, aptitude, synaptic or however you like. The bootchart PNG will be created in the /var/log/bootchart/ directory.

I kindly ask that all participants refrain from posting their bootcharts as attachments. Image attachments are worthless on this site because the images are resized to an unreadable and wholly non-useful degree. All images are to be hosted remotely on sites like Imageshack, Imgur, Photobucket, and Bayimg to name a few.

TO REITERATE: ATTACHMENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED AND WILL NOT DISPLAY A READABLE IMAGE.

Because bootcharts can be over 1MB in size and large in resolution, regular direct image links are preferred over direct images links wrapped in [img] tags or added via the "Insert Image" button. Thumbnail images are fine.

Finally, do be mindful of the fickle nature of bootchart. The PNG file may take a minute or two to be generated along with the TGZ file after the boot finishes. Reprofilings of ureadahead can cause wild improvements or regressions of your boot time.

And to start things off...

My best Lucid boot time ever was roughly 20 seconds. The above image is pretty close (Karmic and Lucid alpha average was 40 seconds) and should be a pretty fair assessment of what Alpha 1 will probably feature.

Kernel: 2.6.34 (latest RC)
Drivers: X Server 1.8.1, Mesa 7.9, Gallium 0.4, Intel 2.11
Hardware: 1.6GHz Core Duo T2050, 2GB DDR2, 160GB 5400rpm SATA, Intel 945GM

Well, I am impressed. Plymouth is by no means fixed for my box but by the very Gods the devs have done some amazing things.

I am still running with no splash in my menu entry.

I do have to login.

I just installed the .34 kernel and installed ureadahead.

Ureadahead was removed so that I could boot without having to use recovery mode under the .32 kernel.

This is an upgrade OS 9.04>9.10>10.04>10.10.

I just restarted 3 times to get the kernel and ureadahead up to speed.

By bootchart 44.74 seconds. This may not impress some but it is a good 20 to 30 seconds off my very best times under .32.

How do you get that boot chart created? or where is it located after you boot?

ranch hand
May 14th, 2010, 09:16 PM
You need to install "bootchart".

It is located at /var/log/bootchart.

If you have bootchart installed already and do not get the graphic file a bug on it. Or better join one. It seems to be buggy in some instances that make no sense to me at all.

Can I add that it may be better to enable automatic login. Because on my machine it included the time for me to login.

It might be worth including ways to improve boot speeds in the OP if you feel like it :)

ranch hand
May 15th, 2010, 12:12 AM
Yes auto login is faster (about 2 seconds on this box) and it should be remembered that the 10sedond target in including auto login.

I do not use auto login except for the first boot after the install of ISO-testing OS'. If I wanted that sort of lax security I would use some MS crap.

Does anyone know if trying to reach the 10s boot on an ssd netbook is still an aim of maverick - I have not seen it talked about too much?

Lucid did a superb job of reducing the boot time but did not achieve its target, at least not according to most people. I still take my hat off to the team for their great achievements.

With my eeepc 901 (ssd) I was getting on average 24s from switch on to desktop (take away 6s for grub that makes 18 for lucid). My guess is that to bring this down a lot more a different or a streamlined dm would have to be used?

I was thinking along the lines of attaching as a tar.gz rather than a screenshot.

That's what I'd done during Lucid testing.

I guess some people don't like opening attachments like that though.

I did that myself and think it is a much better plan.

Of coarse you do have to do a few more clicks to view it but you can have more than one image too, showing a series of results or results from more than one OS.

Following up on my question of whether a 10s boot on a netbook is still a goal for maverick.

I think the answer is no, at least not for the std version.

According to Marks blog
http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/383

I think this goal has now been transplanted into the netbook edition sporting unity.

I'm playing with this at the moment and first impressions are that its neater than previous netbook remix's tho its no faster than std lucid just now.

10 seconds from grub is still a pipedream.

maybe not 10 seconds but close for me...~15 seconds...and that's with regular old SATA harddrive.

I have to say, if you have not done clean install of 10.04...you should try it. I was getting lot longer boot time when I upgraded to 10.04. But after clean install, with ext4, first thing I notice is the boot and shutdown time improvements. I get little better boot time without bootchart also...maybe one or two seconds.

my bootchat times always seem to be pleasingly short at the start of a dev cyle and then double or even tripple during the cycle .not because of my adding starup apps , I install most of those the first day or 2 and usually do several complete reinstalls ( / and home) during the cycle .

As has been mentioned several times, the speed seems to go down as development continues on these test OS'.

I think I may have a record though. This is on an install upgraded from 10.04 which was installed using the RC for 10.04 in ISO testing.

It has always been one of my fast booting installs, under 30 seconds a couple of times.

The last time boot chart worked on that install was the 11th (I think it quit from shock)

Boot time was 3:10:53.

My main installation is doing about the same as always, so far, two boots today 1:13:90 and 1:05:36.

Clean installs do better, one installed from the 10.10-A1 ISO-RC did 32:46 yesterday.

40 seconds one time, 33 another.

Do note boot was from IDE drive with 8 partitions, booting from an extended partition #8.

Do note Grub thinks the IDE is drive b and the sata drive a, while maverick install thinks the IDE is drive a and the sata drive b. Messes up Alpha 2 install since after install Grub is looking for a UUID on one drive and it is actually on the other, and Grub is entirely too dumb to look around and can't even post its initial menu. Yes, there's a launchpad bug. I don't expect any fix. Alpha 1 was O.K.

Was playing with bootchart yesterday after upgrading to Maverick Alpha 3 (from a Lucid) and found this thread...

Managed to get 10.35 seconds out of my rig :D it's a i7-920 (not OC'd) with triple-channel DDR3 memory @ 1600mhz and a SSD (OCZ Vertex)... which is a slightly obscene rig for running Ubuntu but I also use it for video editing and the like w/ Windows.

So 10 seconds seems vaguely possible, but only on top-shelf hardware and SSDs.

Interestingly, I did a few other runs trying to break the 10sec barrier, and sometimes I get higher throughput on the disk, but whenever that happens it also takes longer to boot (~14sec). Odd.

Well, I had a shock today.

Got the libplymouth2 and plymouth upgrades this morning on my through away OS' and they seemed to work pretty well there but no real difference.

Decided to chroot upgrade this, my main testing OS, to see the effect here. I have been able to boot in under 50 seconds for some time now, around 47 usually.

First boot today, right after the upgrade, was 42.43. This is definitely a record low time. 45.8 is the best I have ever done before.

What is the Exe then ?

What did it do on the previous chart to the last one I posted ?

But then again, I rarely reboot. I'm kind of surprised at all the attention towards boot times when the normal user environment is what needs to be sped up.It's mostly bragging rights, I suppose.

But then again, I live in a scorchingly hot environment. I spend a small fortune refrigerating the air in my house ($300/mo), just to make it liveable. All of these computers, I'm running, act like space heaters. It's them vs. my air conditioning system. Thus, I turn them off, when I go to bed.

Sooo, fast boot times have a practical component, in my experience...

I'd expected mine to be faster but I feel it stinks for my hardware

I definitely need to switch over to SSD's, these 7200rpm HD's are slow nowadays

IMO there's too much I/O going on after the ureadahead process finished.

Delete the pack file in '/var/lib/ureadahead' and reboot. Wait a minute or two after the desktop is loaded and then reboot again to get a new chart. That definitely should shave off some seconds.

I think you crippled something on my system because now I always get upon startup(right before Ubuntu 4 dots) an error of that ureadahead

and now ITS MUCH SLOWER my boot.. thanks allot... I did the user-error of not making a backup of that folder before erasing it

I rebooted about 6 times its pretty much on all been the same slow & I'm still getting the startup error I mentioned

Any way of reinstalling ureadahead ?

Clearing that folder shouldn't do that.

Just apt-get remove and then apt-get install. aptitude reinstall usually isn't good enough.

that folder before erasing it

You didn't delete the whole folder, did you? Just the pack file in it!

Anyways, to reinstall ureadahead do:


sudo apt-get purge ureadahead
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-minimal

First one will remove ureadahead (and the meta-package ubuntu-minimal), second one will reinstall both.

hehehe when I read the word pack(somehow I ignored the word "file" next to it lol) I assumed you meant the whole pack of that folder :P

Going to reinstall it with your commands ;)

update

Yup it fixed it - ureadahead

I think the slow booting now is not related to it because I still am in the 39 seconds now... I think it has to do with the updates, its the only changes I've done since my earlier post

I'm hoping someone might be able to provide some insight here. 1st, is there a thread here or some good resources elsewhere on how to decrease boot times? My boot time seems to be getting worse lately. I did a fresh install to the 10.10 RC and the boot time was a little bit slower than it was Mint 9 gnome, but it was ok I suppose. I started out arond 24-25 sec, but now I am consistently averaging over 30 seconds, and the time from when I type in my login password, to when it shows my desktop is also noticeably longer as well. When I was on Mint 9, I was averaging 15-18 sec. boot times. Can anyone help me figure out what's causing the extended boot time?
