we need a login process profiler

I suspect what's going on in Next House is as mundane as that the network is slow and so fetching my homedir out of AFS takes a while, but it would be great to have some hard data behind this.

I think kcarnold suggested using  bootchart and letting it run through the login process, back when we were doing LVM snapshots. Fortunately we knew that was the hotspot and were able to change it to aufs (#97), but logins still aren't as fast as I'd like, and they can always be faster.

And a logout process profiler, since logouts take ~5-10 seconds longer on Lucid than they did on Jaunty.

I spent a fair bit of time doing this while debugging #1052. The big timesinks really are network based, though there's also #954.
