Zarhus-Powered Yocto Boot Time Optimization Report

1000,00  (ex. VAT)

Performing platform boot time tests allows recognizing the system, check which part (bootloader, kernel, userspace) takes the most time to boot the device and plan the next steps to optimize the boot time.

– Analyze of system boot time, from power on the device to log in
– Report of the system boot time

This report is suited for Linux distributions based on the Yocto Project. Please contact us  for more details or for boot time optimization reports for different Linux distributions.

This report thoroughly analyzes the boot time for the client's Yocto-based software stack, covering each stage of the system's boot process. It is "Zarhus-Powered," leveraging advanced tools and methodologies honed by the Software Provider's team from years of experience in embedded systems optimization. This approach allows for the detailed identification of areas impacting boot time and developing specific optimization strategies. For an in-depth understanding of Zarhus' capabilities, please refer to the Zarhus Documentation.
