I've pushed a WIP PR with the changes I made to get the results 
mentioned in my last email - it is here for anyone who is interested in 
such things:


The thing which makes the biggest difference is definitely the caching 
of the system metrics used (the first commit in that patch) - with that 
removed and just the write buffer you get what you'd expect - it takes 
9s (rather than 10s).

I'm always highly dubious about rushing anything to do with I/O of any 
sort - so the write buffer might not appear in a build for a while.

The caching of system metrics though should be absolutely fine once I've 
hooked it up to the system message which gets sent when they change - so 
that will hopefully appear much sooner.

Warmest Regards,
