I've been running Catalina 10.15.5 just fine, but while watching my logs I did notice one thing popping up over and over again. This is new behaviour.

tail -f /var/log/system.log

It doesn't seem to interfere with the stability of the system but I wonder if more people experience this constant killing off of this process.
