I'm not instrumenting the code but using a stopwatch so timings are a
- reboot the machine
- wait that jfss2_gcd_mtd0 finishes hogging the cpu
(around 50 secs from when the shell is displayed)
- go to the listview
- for every activity (one at time), from the drop menu->start and take
the time until the full window redrawn
- do it again from point (*) if you want to see the difference between
first startup and 'warm' startup
I also use to gather stats with Picker while doing the test, to see
what processes are taking more cpu time; it also helps to catch
conditions where activities are fully redrawn at time x but really are
fully loaded at x+20sec (easy to see in etoys and browse).
Are both first and second launch timings needed ?
