Since no one else has mentioned it... bootchart.
Yes, I thought it was only good for the boot not the log in
stage. Perhaps I was wrong though and should try it.
Two parts, one that makes a tarball of /proc every tenth of a second,
the other turns that into a pretty Gantt-style chart so you can see what
is taking all the clock time.
You ought to be able to start it up *post* boot to graph gnome3's
startup instead of the initrd-to-rc.local processes.
There are multiple implementations of both bits. IMO the easiest for
the former is the one included in busybox. The latter try pybootchart2
(from git? can't remember if it has been released). There is an older
version in java which I automatically dismiss.
Hmm, I'll need to investigate it a bit :)
IIRC you're also visually impaired, so I dunno how helpful it is.
Yes - good memory :) I'll try and use it and perhaps seek some sighted
help to view the graph.
