12 Lessons Learnt in Boot Time Reduction - Andrew Murray, Embedded Bits Limited

It's not uncommon to produce embedded Linux based devices that end up with long and inconvenient boot times - yet eliminating boot time delays can be difficult and time consuming. Furthermore once a minimal boot time has been achieved it's often just as difficult to maintain it through subsequent software development.

In this presentation, Andrew unfolds 12 keys lessons learnt in his experience of boot time reduction. These lessons provide an insight into the common causes of boot time delays, why they are present and how they can be overcome. In describing these lessons Andrew will also take you on a journey that indicates why file system benchmarks should probably be ignored (with respect to boot time reduction) and a journey that illustrates that the Linux kernel is rarely the worst offender for boot delays.
