Re: Paralell startup



It is a real gain. Many services sit there and wait for a network timeout, or 
other high-latency, low-disk activity. 

 Annoying. Load the other, non-dependant services in the meanwhile.
Head 'thrashing' due to multiple application access may cause some overall 
ineffiency, but it really depends on the ratio of disk activity to 
application latency.
