Wouldn't it be interesting if the iops were caused by excessive swap?


From  https://source.android.com/setup/build/requirements

"If you are running Linux in a virtual machine, you need at least 16GB of RAM/swap."


Sounds like it takes a lot of memory to build Android.

I would be curious if building in memory might improve performance. I know tmpfs is subject to being swapped out to disk, but, it's got to be faster than just straight disk if there is enough memory in the box.

Something like...

mount -o size=1G -t tmpfs "build" /mnt/build
