Bootchart is a tool for performance analysis and visualization of the GNU/Linux boot process. Resource utilization data and process information are collected during the boot process, and can later be displayed in a PNG, SVG, or EPS encoded chart. Analyzing the chart will help in finding opportunities for optimization.

Release Notes: This release introduces application monitoring, alternative init invocation (e.g. initng), and better FHS compliance.
Release Notes: This release brings significant changes to the boot logger. top and iostat are no longer used, as the logger gets all the necessary data from /proc directly (meaning more accurate information with less overhead). Init scripts are no longer patched; the logger is started by the kernel in place of /sbin/ init and has to explicitly enabled in GRUB/LILO.
Release Notes: This release adds EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) rendering support. The common package was also refactored, making it easier to introduce new log file parsers.
Release Notes: This release streamlined the way log files are handled, improved the CLI interface, and added Conectiva Linux to the list of supported distributions.
Release Notes: This release adds better FHS compliance, better Debian and Ubuntu support, support for Source Mage Linux, and several parser and renderer fixes.
