I am very happy with the performance of L5. However, it takes about a minute to fully boot up. Is this about what others are experiencing. I have around 2800 resources.

The initial load time is a result of at least three factors.

1. How fast the information can travel from the disk to RAM.  Disk speed, the type of disk interface, and even the processor(s) can affect this.

2. How much RAM you have.  While information is being loaded into RAM, your computer may "run out of room" and will need to then "cache" that information that it would have prefered to keep in RAM back to a swap file on the disk. Now the bottleneck is working in both directions.

3. CPU/GPU.  Both the computer's processor and the graphics processor (which I am lumping together against my better judgment) do the hard work of transfering data and drawing it on screen. (Edit: There are even more variables depending on RAM on the video card or devoted to the GPU.)

 

All of these factors and a combination will generate differences in load time.

Now then to answer your question: No. I am seeing less than a minute from double click to ready to go. That increases when my computer is already busy doing other things, but without doing a restart this second I believe I typically load for about 40 seconds.

It takes about 10-15 seconds to boot with 12 resources open, and I have 3143 resources. It depends on your computer hardware, internet speed (if your first page is home page, but i don't run home page); SSD adds much better performance.

Specs are listed in my signature.  I recently bought a new laptop primarily for Logos.  Processor is boosted from 2.4 ghz to 3.2 and I have 8gb of RAM and 1GB of video RAM.

Second the SSD. You can have a great processor but you will be slowed down alot by the hard drive. Laptop hard drives spin pretty slowly incomparison to the blazing speed of an SSD drive

Total other thing: it will open a lot faster when you do not start with loading the homepage. Unless you really like it ik can save quite some time.

I get the sound at 13.8 seconds after click and my layout is loaded and the spinning synchronization arrows are done by 43.5 seconds.

Alright I decided to give it the real test. 

I performed a system restart, logged in to my account and walked away long enough to get another Coffee while the disk finished up and stopped thrashing.

Once the system was completely calm I started a stopwatch and hit the icon more or less simultaneously.

  • 28 seconds from click until "Synchronizing documents" came up.
  • 23 more seconds (total 51) Until the music played.
  • 4 seconds till the home screen populated. 
  • Total click to done: 56 seconds. (leave room for miliseconds in my math here).

FWIW, shutting down Logos 5, waiting about fifteen seconds and doing it again:

  • 16 seconds from click to music.
  • 2 more seconds for the home page to populate.
  • Total: 18 seconds.

I get signing in about 5s in then quickly to sync which takes about 10s, UI is up within another 5s and home page is loaded less than 5s after that. That makes a total of 20-25s from the time I click the icon until I can browse the start page stuff.

I have less RAM than you, but my system is entirely on an SSD.

What speed is your internet? Maybe there is a bottleneck there.

I'm not sure why the number of resources in your collection would matter unless you had a lot of them load in a default layout.

Full restart after first start is 9 seconds here.

Dave Hooton has shared over the years re. using CCleaner and Defragler!                             I use these two free items every few days.  Am shocked at how fast L5 is, even when I`m starting it with a lot of resources open.  I have almost exactly the same power and set-up as the OP except I still have Windows 7.

            It just blazes into life at startup when I only have a couple of resources open.                I`ve been keeping the number of my layouts down to a reasonable level; and I think that makes a great difference also!        I am a really Happy, Happy camper!

                                                                      Peace to all!                    and ...         Always Joy in the Lord!    *smile*

I think the speed of my internet connection may be the issue. My office is in an executive center with multiple companies using a common T1 and it and speeds can very greatly during the day. I do not boot to the Homepage (haven't since Camp Logos). I boot with about 8-10 resources open. I bought a new laptop 2 weeks ago so SSD is out of the question for now. All that said, I just restarted my computer. Ran a speedtest (14 mbps download, 4 mbps upload) and this time Logos went from double click to fully usable in 34 seconds. From this I believe that my variation may in fact be due to internet speeds. At this speed I am pretty happy.

Just for fun I ran a speed test with a server in Bellingham, WA and got even better speeds that I did locally.  Surprise

Now I'm embarrassed for posting this in the first place.  Closed and rebooted L5 twice and it took 13 seconds and 12 seconds.  I hereby change the title of this post to L5 is fast. . . with no exceptions!  Geeked

ahh... since it is a new computer could just be SuperFetch (or whatever MS is currently calling it) is still learning your usage patterns
