Here's mine

Code: Select all

Startup finished in 1.363s (kernel) + 2.305s (initrd) + 21.170s (userspace) = 24.840s
but I have the impression that the booting takes more time than 25 seconds
This doesn't include the BIOS time to start up. Also it seems a bit long to me. Sometimes if your journal gets bigger on a slower hard drive, it can really impact boot time. So on mine, UEFI can take 8-11 seconds, but the Solus part of the boot takes 3s.

What's the output of

Code: Select all

Well obviously this is up to you, but it seems to suggest that the journal size could be impacting boot time. This will show the size of the journals

Code: Select all

 ls -al /var/log/journal/*
If they are quite large, you can limit the size of the journal by uncommenting and setting a size limit in /etc/systemd/journald.conf for these two lines
SystemMaxUse=15M
RuntimeMaxUse=15M
Not sure on a good value though

Is the journal too big in my case?

Code: Select all

ls -al /var/log/journal/*

They are medium size. The problem is on a slower hard drive it could take 3s to load it all (probably doesn't matter on SSD). The problem with the spinny disks is that it tries to read multiple parts of the disk at once and they really aren't good at that. So if boot time is an issue you can try limiting the size per above. I've used as low as 5MB before cause my old machine had a slow HDD, but of course, you lose the old journal data by doing this.

My Solus project start in;
Startup finished in 1.264s (kernel) + 9.700s (initrd) + 480ms (userspace) = 11.444s
My Solus disk is encrypted.

VirtualBox slows down a lot my machine :

                └─system.slice
                  └─-.slice
Is there some solution to speed up ?!

First disable VirtualBox and see if that fixes boot time
