Post your Systemd startup times


Gee, taught I had the slowest install here, say that it s my fastest one !


My live ISO does better:

The kernel takes a while because I’m loading the image into RAM.


It s weird, always was slower on a live iso on my end.


Well , guess that I m gonna download SharpBang for some use later on.


Mine is here :

That’s funny, while booting it seems to be way less. Anyway, gonna remove docker in a few weeks and it’ll boot way faster !


Pretty quick @gazeka74


Startup finished in 2.238s (kernel) + 3.392s (userspace) = 5.631s reached after 3.392s in userspace


Gee, another quick pc in there !


Using a crucial BX500 ssd - 240GB

└> $ systemd-analyze 
Startup finished in 2.419s (kernel) + 2.408s (userspace) = 4.828s reached after 2.197s in userspace


Nice and fast!



Quickest boot to desktop ive ever had, is it a combination of kernel and hardware?
Would it be quicker if i had auto login enabled maybe?


More than likely. To answer your second question, I have no idea :D. Would you notice the extra second you save? I know I probably wouldn’t. :smiley:


Yeah not like i need it any quicker lol! Just thinking out loud again. :wink:


I know what you mean though. Instant start would be epic. Though 5-6 seconds isn’t anything to complain about :smiley:


20 years from now maybe nixers will be whinging about microsecond boot ups, i can see it now., “Systemd sucks it takes 0.16 of a second to boot up :)”:grinning:


It wouldn’t surprise me if it did lol.


For me, almost every kernel update enhanced boot time for some ms on my box (Thinkpad x240, i7-4600, SSD). After fresh install of AL 2018.12:


└> % systemd-analyze 13:21:25
Startup finished in 1.592s (kernel) + 1.219s (userspace) = 2.812s reached after 1.217s in userspace

I don’t think so, is equivalent to runlevel 5 meaning, X11 has been started in multi-user mode. From the archlinux wiki:

5: Multi user with X11: The same as 3 but with X11 loaded in virtual terminal 8 by default

[5] Usually has all the services of runlevel 3 plus a graphical login.

PS: I also noticed my box booting faster while hot.


Wow, lightning years faster than my installs !
