    Phoronix: Fedora 18 Systemd Boot Performance Is Mixed

    In addition to open-source graphics driver benchmarking, another area being explored with the recent release of Fedora 18 is the boot performance. Here's some initial results from three systems compared to the Spherical Cow's predecessor.

    So I found time to look at this again yesterday, and found that for me, the problem seems to be in nautilus, and appears to happen only when the network is down:

    Is your network down when booting the system? If so it could be the same thing; nautilus may be coming up in MATE.

If you just restart gnome-shell with alt-f2 'r', does it also take a long time? I'm planning to work on debugging this with the desktop devs soon. This could well be the bug that hit some of the systems in this benchmark.

    for me fedora 18 boots quickly but the GDM loads in about 30 seconds and once i log in the desktop takes another 30 seconds to load...its hardly usable this way, especially cause i installed it on an ssd

    Hi everybody, hi Michael.

    I just wanted to let you know that systemd has a really easy and nice tool to analyze what is slow. Sometimes the slow task might even be non-blocking, so that user perceived boot time is not as slow as stats declare.

    To have a better detail of boot times and slow services you can use:
    Code:
    systemd-analyze time
    and:
    Code:
    systemd-analyze blame
    You can even get a plot of boot with:
    Code:
    systemd-analyze plot
    BTW, a good guide to using the tool can be found here:

    This realy sucks, if it is practicaly slower in Fedora 18 as well.

    I have not realy felt the need for a SSD, because Fedora 17 boots realy fast en feels realy responsive for file lookup. For example when I mount a Windows partition, Rhythmbox instantly displays all music that's on that drive, and scrolling and previewing a map full of pictures is so fast that I can't notice any slowdowns using a HDD.

    I hope that once I install Fedora 18 on my new (refurbished) desktop with a standard Seagate Baracuda 500GB, this isn't making me downgrade to Fedora 17

    This is not a good article! It would be interesting where the problem exactly is! As "funkSTAR" said, you can analyze this with systemd's blame!

    So... man power should think to solve hibernation problems rather than boot speed.

    Anyway that's strange, i always used hibernation (first tuxonice, then vanilla) with:
    7900gt,9600gt,9800gt and ion first gen without problems across kernel releases for years.
