Projects / Bootchart


Bootchart is a tool for performance analysis and visualization of the GNU/Linux boot process. Resource utilization data and process information are collected during the boot process, and can later be displayed in a PNG, SVG, or EPS encoded chart. Analyzing the chart will help in finding opportunities for optimization.

      Release Notes: This release brings significant changes to the boot logger. top and iostat are no longer used, as the logger gets all the necessary data from /proc directly (meaning more accurate information with less overhead).
