To find the total boot time of your system you can use the systemd-analyze commend.


This will show something like:

Startup finished in 4.492s (kernel) + 17.338s (userspace) = 21.831s

If you want to know the exact time of all your services you can use:

systemd-analyze blame

This will show you every service and the time it needed to startup.
