One question. The original article did not list the average of for the SysV managed boot. Please correct me if I'm wrong but the original article only shows the max and min for the Sysinit.. not the mean.
Could I please have a clean listing of mean for all the implementations under test?
Here's my succinct summary of the benchmark data.
but based on what I read here's the summary
SysV best case: 3.37
upstart best case: 2.78 diff from SysV: -0.59
systemd best case: 2.32 diff from upstart: -0.56 diff from sysV: -1.05
SysV worst case: 3.42
upstart worst case: 3.03 diff from SysV: -0.39
systemd worst case: 2.85 diff from upstart: -0.18 diff from sysV: -0.57
SysV mean case: ?.??
upstart mean case: 2.92 diff from SysV: ??
systemd mean case: 2.48 diff from upstart: -0.44 diff from sysV: ??
I'd really like to see this test repeated under real world workloads to see how the performance scales into expected real world provisioning situations.
