Most of the stats showing boot times seem to use bootchartd to collect
the information.  There is a RFP (#321784), but it seem no-one
volunteered to maintain it yet.

I believe it is vital to know where the time is spend during boot if
we are to speed up the boot process, and this suspect this is a tool
we want to have in debian.

I found some info on a debian package and how to use it in debian from

debian package available from

Anyone here planning to maintain it in debian?  It is GPL, and uses
shell, perl and java (the two latter to make the graphs. :).
