Well - is that really idle? There is heavy disk-io during the ureadahead period, and isn't that the whole point of ureadahead - to read in everything that the other processes are about to need?

In the 37 seconds to 62 there is no activity, that's the gap I'm talking about.

hmm ok. Note the peak at about 50s; when nm-dispatcher.a exits; I guess that's an interesting point to figure out why it's waiting - for network? Still doesn't answer what it does from 50-62.

Oneiric is no more maintained and lot of system processes have been upgraded then; so closing that report.

Changed in ureadahead (Ubuntu):
