Same here, downgrading to 4.4 from Xenial improved the situation (boot still feels a little slower than Xenial though, maybe because of the NetworkManager bug). I use a 7 years old desktop computer based on a Gigabyte motherboard and AMD Phenom II X4 955 CPU, So it's not Thinkpad- related.
(From GRUB to lightdm used to be 7 seconds in 16.04, but using Kernel 4.8 and the new network manager it feels more like 20 secs. Also, the Unity 7+Chromium launch used to take just very few seconds, now it's a noticable delay with only the wallpaper showing, no matter which kernel I use, so that's unrelated. Anyway, booting my computer has just become a lot less fun even though I removed Apache 2 and Tomcat. :( ) -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1626436 Title: [4.8 regression] boot has become very slow Status in linux package in Ubuntu: Triaged Bug description: With yakkety's recent update from linux 4.4 to 4.8 booting has become a lot slower. It's not one service in particular, but without "quiet" and "splash" you can now easily read every single line instead of that whole wall of text zipping by. It now takes over 20s instead of ~10 seconds to boot. This is even more dramatic when factoring out the recent boot hang of NetworkManager (bug 1622893) and disabling lightdm: sudo systemctl mask NetworkManager NetworkManager-wait-online lightdm then booting with 4.4 takes 1.5s and with 4.8 19.5s (!). Some excerps from systemd-analyze blame: 4.4: 474ms postfix@-.service 395ms lxd-containers.service 305ms networking.service 4.8: 4.578s postfix@-.service 7.300s lxd-containers.service 6.285s networking.service I attach the full outputs of critical-chain and analyze for 4.4 and 4.8 for reference. This is much less noticeable in the running system. There is no immediate feeling of sluggishness (although my system is by and large idle). I compared the time of sbuilding colord under similar circumstances (-j4, building on tmpfs, thus no hard disk delays; running with fully pre-loaded apt-cacher-ng thus no random network delays), and with 4.4 it takes 6.5 minutes and with 4.8 it takes 7.5. So that got a bit slower, but much less dramatically than during boot, so this is either happening when a lot of processes run in parallel, or is perhaps related to setting up cgroups. One thing I noticed that during sbuild in 4.8 "top" shows ridiculous loads (~ 250) under 4.8, while it's around 4 or 5 under 4.8. But that doesn't reflect in actual sluggishness, so this might be just an unrelated bug.
