>There are other posts about regular boot times, so how about the worst case, file system checks. That’s that check that runs every 30 boots or so just because we are paranoid about making sure the file system is sane.
|Boot||Intrepid (est)||Jaunty with ext4|
|Normal||30 – 45 seconds||18 – 22 seconds|
|File System Check||5 – 10 minutes||43 seconds|
Of course a lot of this is due to the use of the new ext4 file system (ext3 will be the default in Jaunty again because we are paranoid). At 43 seconds I don’t mind the file system check nearly as much. Progress. 🙂
