prelink: HOWTO and benchmarks

Filed under

I’ve used prelink in the past on Ubuntu in an attempt to speed up application loading, but I’ve never actually done any benchmarks to test the results. I decided today to run some simple benchmarks to gauge the performance increase of using prelink.

For readers too lazy to read through the entire article, I will summarize by saying that using prelink does reduce application load time.

Programs that will be used for testing: 2.4 Writer
Firefox 3.0
Azureus BitTorrent Client
Evolution Mail Client
