Does dmesg not give what you need?

You can try to use bootchart. Install it and reboot your system. Bootchart will automatically create a .png image that contains lot of informations. See if this, is what you need.

    sudo apt-get install bootchart
    sudo reboot

The .png file will be created inside /var/log/bootchart/

Thanks, NikTH and Actionparsnip, but my requirement is that I want to capture the events emitted by the upstart jobs. i am not sure if with bootchar and dmesg i will be able to capture those events?
I have written test.conf to record all jobs events but it isnt working fine.

Can you help with this problem?
