Startup Performance

  • Startup timeline: Vlad landed the core startup timeline code (bug 480735). Now he, Ehsan, Shawn and a host of others are cranking on adding instrumentation all over the codebase. Follow along in bug 560647.
  • Taras' research found that the giant binary approach in bug 525013 is more complicated and reduces our options for improving binary read performance. The new effort is being tracked in bug 561842.



  • Ted has a cute baby!
  • Jim has reassigned the upstream patches to the new reviewer, but we're going to take local patches for now, because the lack of x86_64 Mac support blocks our ability to complete the unit test on Talos mac project.
