Post your Systemd startup times


Share your systemd startup times.

To do this, in a terminal for startup times:


To see what is starting up, in a terminal:

systemd-analyze blame

Or to view in graph:

systemd-analyze plot > boot.svg


Today mine is a little crap:

Startup finished in 2.196s (kernel) + 1min 5.264s (userspace) = 1min 7.460s reached after 2.819s in userspace

The blame goes to:

Another way to post this, is with “systemd-analyze plot > boot.svg”. This will give you a graphical representation of your entire boot process.


My VM boot time… Pending new mainline to fix AMD seg-fault issues.


I’ll add this to the first post. Cool addition.


It’s probably right in front of my face but what format option are you guys using for code blocks?


I think the one @Dobbie03 was using is the quote feature though.

This is a block of code inside [code][/code] 


Thanks AvnSgt

This result doesn’t surprise me…

I was using the block quote feature


Nice speeds, though at one point I was under 4 seconds. Not sure what has changed between then and now.
