Finding Slowdowns In Linux's Suspend/Resume Process

One of the recent project's out of the Intel Open-Source Technology Center has been to track down delays in the Linux kernel's suspend and resume process.

Intel's Len Brown at the Linux Plumbers Conference announced the SuspendResume project as a convenient program for analyzing where the most delays are caused during the suspend/resume process.

This SuspendResume analyzer is housed at Intel's site.

This project should be quite useful for kernel developers wishing to figure out where delays are taking place during the process and to hopefully optimize the code for greater performance.
