About

Bootchart is a tool for performance analysis and visualization of the GNU/Linux boot process. Resource utilization and process information are collected during the boot process and are later rendered in a PNG, SVG or EPS encoded chart.

The project started as a response to a challenge posted by Owen Taylor on the Fedora development mailing list: Online Casino Deutsch

"The challenge is to create a single poster showing graphically what is going on during the boot, what is the utilization of resources, how the current boot differs from the ideal world of 100% disk and CPU utilization, and thus, where are the opportunities for optimization." Parhaat Nettikasinot

Bootchart provides a shell script to be run by the kernel in the init phase. The script will run in background and collect process information, CPU statistics and disk usage statistics from the /proc file system. The performance data are stored in memory and are written to disk once the boot process completes. new online casino

The boot log file is later processed using a Java application (or the web form) which builds the process tree and renders a performance chart in different formats: Cassino Online Brasil

The chart can then be analyzed to examine process dependency and overall resource utilization.
