What is going on?

I'm collecting detailed boot data from a variety of machines. I plan to calculate some System Recover Benchmark version A (SRB-A) benchmark results for a wide variety of machines... more on that later. I notice that some systems spend significantly more time early in the boot cycle for Solaris than others. By significant I mean on the order of 30-40 seconds versus say, 5 seconds. While this might not seem like much, for an availability guy this is huge. It is a crucial part of closing the difference between four-nines to six-nines. With our significant improvements in the Solaris 10 boot times, we already knock a lot of the time out of the boot sequence, and gaining another 25 seconds is becoming a big deal. Back to the labor-atory...
