Very Slow Boot in F16

Hello,

Since some random updates, my computer is very slow to boot (about 5 minutes). The plymouth logo is slow loading during 5 minutes, until the SLIM manager start.

Here is my bootchart: http://i41.tinypic.com/2eupqhc.png

unfortunately I can't understand where the problem is. I disabled the icsi services but still nothing.

Thank for your help
Raphael

Re: Very Slow Boot in F16

Sorry cant recognized anything on the graphic.

Could you provide the output of either
Code:
systemd-analyze blame
systemd-analyze
And copy paste the output into [ code] ... [/ code] tags, OR
Code:
systemd-analyze blame > ~/blame.txt
systemd-analyze >> ~/blame.txt
And attach blame.txt

Only disable iscsi service if you have no scsi devices attached to your environment.
As you are directing towards an harddrive issue, please provide also the following output:
Code:
lsblk
blkid

Re: Very Slow Boot in F16

Ok for the optics at first:

This step is optional
Code:
seasc set os rh plymouth
Install the all plymouth files, and after change to either details or text.
As soon the boot time is acceptable, change to what ever you want (my preference is solar).


If you neither use: (to me, it looks like you dont)
* raid
* scsi
* lvm
* livesystem (NOT an installation on a usb. A livemedia)

If you do use any of the above, the according service should be removed from the list variable below.
You can run this in a terminal:
Code:
list="
fedora-storage-init
fedora-storage-init-late
fedora-wait-storage
mdmonitor-takeover
livesys
livesys-late
lvm2-monitor
"
su -c "for s in $list ; do systemctl disable $s.service;done"
After this step, reboot and post the output of:
Code:
systemd-analyze

Re: Very Slow Boot in F16

Thank you, I disabled all the services you mentionned, and now boot time is as short as ever.

Unfortunately now "systemd-analyze" fail with this error:

Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File /usr/bin/systemd-analyze, line 82, in <module>
    initrd_time, start_time, finish_time = acquire_start_time()
  File /usr/bin/systemd-analyze, line 35, in acquire_start_time
    assert startup_time <= finish_time
AssertionError
Every thing all seems to be working fine though.

Re: Very Slow Boot in F16

Try to enable mdmonitor-takeover.service again, and see if boot time remains.

Code:
# systemctl enable mdmonitor-takeover.service

Re: Very Slow Boot in F16

Boot time remains. But systemd-analyse still fails with the same error.

Re: Very Slow Boot in F16

Ok, as i was guessing the mdmonitor, disable it again.
Next guess would be to enable fedora-wait-storage.

If systemd-analyze still doesnt work, i would not know which other service it could be.
I'm not that experienced enough with services, these 2 seemed to match best imho.

EDIT:
You have 2 options:
a) toggle all services of the list on and off, reboot after each one...
b) Most brute way to fix it would be
Code:
sudo yum reinstall systemd

Re: Very Slow Boot in F16

I can't enable this service again:
"Warning: unit files do not carry install information. No operation executed
"

I don't know how the other services could help with this error.

But you know, everything seems to be working fine, so thank you for your help already. Thank you very much

Re: Very Slow Boot in F16

Just sharing my situation here, as i have no idea how to help further by any suggestions.

On my netbook, i have a file called scservices.
The harddisk is shown as ATA, however with lsscsi (i had to install it first) i get this output:
Code:
[0:0:0:0]    disk    ATA      Hitachi HTS54323 ES2O  /dev/sda
As it is a netbook, there is no raid possible, and i dont use lvm.
I do have a NAS, but most of the times it is offline and if its online i use the browser to access it.

The script looks like:
PHP Code:
#!/bin/bash
# |
# | Variables
    
listS="fedora-readonly
        fedora-storage-init
        fedora-storage-init-late
        fedora-wait-storage
        ip6tables
        livesys
        livesys-late
        lvm2-monitor
        mdmonitor-takeover
        netfs
        sendmail
        "
# |
# | Display
    
for s in $listS; do sudo systemctl disable $s.service;done
    
for s in $listS;do sudo ln -sf /dev/zero /etc/systemd/system/$s.service;done
    
    sudo systemctl disable dev
-hugepages.mount 
While the boot times are:
Code:
systemd-analyze blame  && systemd-analyze
  4461ms systemd-vconsole-setup.service
  3064ms udev-trigger.service
  2731ms remount-rootfs.service

Re: Very Slow Boot in F16

I have always connected a TV BOX (USB 2.0) to my computer.
I am working with Linux and Windows XP on 2 separate hard disks (I can choose on boot my OS).
The TV BOX is working very good on Windows XP.
My Linux OS is the Fedora 16 KDE x86_64.
Fedora could not recognize the tv box but I had not any other problems with the OS.
Recently I got the official fedora updates (new kernel 3.3.0-8).
This kernel could recognise the usb tv box but, I could not find a way to use it.

Anyway , I noticed some unusual problems with the new kernel :
- Τhe boot time was very longer.
- Very often I could not use my keyboard and my mouse ον start up. I could not press any key to login..... (It is a usb keyboard - mouse). I had to restart the PC again and again....
- There was a persistent kernel bug reported to me very often by the ABRT immediately after login.
- During shutting off there was a bug (CPU #1 stall 22 sec). I had to press the power button of the PC steadily on order to shut off.

So, I decided to disconnect the tvbox of the usb port .
After this, all the above problems were disappeared.

I try to help.
Thanks a lot.
