      Man, thanks for this! I never gave it a thought but your post helped me to speed up my Manjaro boot considerably. Not only did I disable that service but I also disabled my 5 nfs auto-mounts. They were costing time, seconds for each which added up.

      I need my nfs shares to be auto-mounted still and I solved it by just mounting them via a script that gets executed _after_ the KDE start up. It works like a charm and to me the difference (between fstab auto-mount and autostart running this script) is indistinguishable.

      Now, I'm barely able to see the startup messages and KDE pops right up!

        That's not what is claimed on Gentoo forums... So many claims, so few benchmarks.

          Automounter should mount the nfs filesystem as soon as something attempts to access the directory path of the mount. Are you actually using Automounter or just relying on fstab to soft/hard mount the NFS file systems at boot time?

            Just fstab with "noauto". What is this Automounter thingie?

              It's called autofs. You can use it to mount a ton of things so that it only mounts on demand. I don't know much about systemd, but this is how we used to do things way back in the 90's (and I continue to do things that way.) Solaris, AIX, Linux, HPUX, etc. they all had an autofs function, although it may have had different names, generally the automounting maps were fairly similar if not the same.

              Here is a tutorial for linux: https://www.linuxtechi.com/automount...-using-autofs/

                You can disable this and reboot to notice if it makes a difference for a slow boot sequence. This is applicable to most distro (arch, ubuntu, ... ):
                Code:
                sudo systemctl disable NetworkManager-wait-online.service
                lol, yet another Manjaro user who thinks he's an Arch user. No one uses NetworkManager on Arch.

                  Highly doubtful.

                    Does anyone know of benchmarks comparing tuned distros rather than out-of-the-box?

                    Are there tuning guides anywhere for achieving the best setup? The Manjaro performance section on the wiki seems to be relatively limited.
