I need the ETL to see more.

 

I hope I have included what you needed (attached).  When I used the boot parameter, nothing showed up...so I used "shutdown" instead.

 

Thanks in advanced,

 

Kyle

I need the large generated ETL and not a xml file.

 

Use this command please:

 

xbootmgr -trace shutdown -noPrepReboot -traceFlags BASE+LATENCY+DISPATCHER+FILE_IO+FILENAME -stackwalk profile+CSwitch+ReadyThread -resultPath C:\TEMP

 

Zip the file and upload it (cloud service) and post (send me) a link.

Does these diagnostic tools work for Windows 8/8.1 too? Thank you!

Hello,

 

Newly created Windows 7 image is taking around 3-5 minutes or so to log off and then shutdown (some computers a lot longer).  Our machines are apart of a domain.

 


Any help would be very much appreciated.

 

 

the trace shows that you copy user profiles data during logoff (userenv.dll!CopyProfileDirectoryEx2, userenv.dll!RecurseDirectory which enums all files in the profile). This runs a long time and causes the slowdown.

Hi Andrew,

while having problems with shutting down my computer I have sent you a personal message and uploaded the the zipped etl-file, hoping that you can give me advice.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Albert

please remove Acronis tools. I see several delays by snapman.sys which belongs to Acronis.

Hi Andrew,

Removing Acronis tools actually solved my shutdown problem. Thank you.

Perhaps I may ask you once more to shorten my laptop´s boottime.

I couln´t yet identify the culprit who is responsible for a long, long boottime. So I made the corresponding etl file and uploaded to the Internet. I would appreciate your help in analyzing the boot trace log. The link I have sent to your personal email address.

MfG

Albert

My brother's having a problem where his PC will wake from standby but the monitor won't come on, so he has to hard reboot. I recall having the same problem with my PC a while ago but I can't remember if I ever found a cause or fix or if I just reinstalled Windows in the end.

 

He's up to date with Windows Updates except for IE11, which won't install properly and just ends up restoring/undoing the Update after a couple of reboots but that's another problem.

 

I'd be grateful if you could have a look at his trace for me, so that we can hopefully fix this for him.

the long boot comes from the slow HDD. It is busy for 90s:

So, replace your HDD with a SSD to kill this bootleneck.

I can't see this in the trace. I only see that resuming the HDD is a bit slow (over 2s)

It didn't happen when I made this trace and he says it doesn't happen all the time but frequently enough to be annoying. I thought the trace might show something that's happening when resuming that could be causing it anyway. Is there a batch file I can make for him that will collect some useful files after he has to hard reboot?

 

He's also finding his PC is on in the mornings after putting it into standby before going to bed (I got the impression that when this happens he is generally able to wake the monitor), so I've made him a batch file to run powercfg -lastwake >>log.txt, so he can send me the log so that we can try and find out what's doing that.

xbootmgr is used to troubleshoot PERF issues only, not stability issues.

Gotcha, thanks. I'll start a new thread for my brother's problem.
