preload is an adaptive readahead daemon for Linux OSes. It monitors applications that users run, and by analyzing this data, predicts what applications users might run, and fetches those binaries and their dependencies into memory for faster startup times.

preload runs as a daemon and gathers information about processes running on
the system and shared-objects that they use. This information is saved in a
file to keep across runs of preload.


The easiest way to run preload is by using the provided initscript. If you
use the RPM package, you should be fine, otherwise you may need to manually
add the service and enable it, by running commands like:

/sbin/chkconfig --add preload

Let preload run for a couple of boots before expecting it to predict that
much. Technically, you need to run any application at least two times
before preload starts predicting it.

Proof that I'm an idiot.
