Bootchart is an excellent tool for seeing what goes on when your computer boots. However, it only charts up to the login screen. Is there any way to analyze what is happening when I actually log in? I would like to see which startup applications are taking the most time.

Also probably interesting is the effort made by moblin to boot in 5 seconds.

In Ubuntu Karmic, bootchart is set by default to continue for 45 seconds after booting is finished. This allows you to analyze what happens after you log in.

The recently announced timechart seems interesting. I can't seem to find a download link for it, though.
