    LinuxICE2 9s boot! Faster than XP, Win7. [With Video]

    So I thought I'd run a few benchmarks on the new Atom330 system I put together. First on a regular 7200k 160GB hdd and then a 30Gig SSD. Here are the results:

    Atom330, 1GB RAM.
    Software: LinuxICE2 Beta2 Full install, stock Ubuntu Kernel.
    File System: Ext4

    HDD: WD1600BEKT Western Digital 160GB
    Boot time: 14s

    SSD: OCZ Agility 30GB
    Boot time: 9s


    NOTE: this was a cold boot, from the start of the bootloader to login. Add about 1s for the display to load and your playing nGhost styles .
    Windows

    Attached below are the bootcharts. As you can see there is room for improvement. I plan on upgrading to 9.10 later next week and trying NilFS. I expect sub 7s boots at that point. I'll also get some hibernate resume benchmarks.

    After the upgrade to 9.10:

    Notes:
    full boot (from POST to nGhost):
    ~29s
    ~23s

    There's a lot of improvements in the kernel in later versions. I may try to build a custom one just for the Atom and throw it in the repo for others to use. I'm sure 5s boots are possible just like moblin on a specific platform.

    Of the 9s boot? Sure. I actually recorded the 14s. I'll record the SSD boot and post when I get home.

    How were you able to embed your YouTube Vid? I tried embedding a VIMEO using the VIMEO button and it didn't work.

    I just pasted the URL. I'm pretty sure this forum has a youtube plugin of sorts.

    Update:

    Wow! The boot is dramatically faster after the upgrade to 9.10. The upgrade went relatively smooth. Autologin broke, but that was an easy copy and past from one file to another to re-enable it.

    If you do the math: 29(POST->nghost) - 9(kernel->login) = 20s. 23(POST->nghost on 9.10) - 20 (POST+display) = 3seconds from kernel to login?

    That's insane!

    3second boot!

    I don't know if that was quite 9 seconds from post but still pretty impressive!
