OK on a tiny system ... but sounds painful on a big
server. 0.2s for 4G scales up to 3 minutes 25 seconds
on a 4TB system (4TB systems were being sold two
years ago ... so by now the high end will have moved
up to 8TB or perhaps 16TB).

Would the resulting output be anything but noise on
a big system (a *lot* of pages can change state in
3 minutes)?
