Although the tool has long been available but has not until now that we have learned of its existence: e4rat is a set of tools that “ accelerate the boot process and startup times of applications “.
Programmed by two developers
of Augsburg University, e4rat defragmentation is based on the integrated file system ext4 to sort the files sequentially on a hard drive, which reduces the time Boot to a third of those referred routinely.
In the example posted on the official website of the project show how Debian Squeeze went to boot in 45 seconds to do it in just 13 seconds , and that in a conventional hard drive (no SSD) , which certainly can make an interesting point for those of you looking to try this package, which code (for Debian, do not know if it will work correctly on other distros) is available here.
