My Boot Chart....

I understand that many people have considerations regarding boot times and other performance oriented metrics.

I’ve picked up a boot chart for my machine which is normal VAIO with very normal components running openSUSE 11.4 (x86_64) with minor modifications. I’ve disabled some services I don’t use (I could disable a few more), and I’m also loading strange things like (indicator-applet and friends) which are mainly the Ubuntu interface indicators that I’m working on for openSUSE (GNOME:Ayatana)…

Here’s my bootchart with 45 secs (No I’m not optimizing my system), just sharing it to try and see if this is normal or not very normal :wink:

Booting speed and time based on hardware. I have not count my system booting time. My system has:
Motherboard: asus crosshair 3 formula with AMD chipchet
Processor: AMD phenom 2 x3 in 4 Ghz
Graphics card: AMD radeon 6990 with 2 cores.
HDD: WD Caviar blue 1.2 Tb.
Operating system: openSUSE, 11.3 x86_64, KDE 4.6.
