It certainly lets us copy faster, since we're less I/O bound, which would mean over a given time period, we'd be waiting for I/O to complete less, and doing attribute comparisons more.

Plus, note...

We're really not terribly CPU intensive except when doing a Time Machine backup, so that's certainly curious. But there's no way for us to "turn down our CPU use" - that's up to the OS, which is...

This looks like SuperDuper isn't in "Full Disk Access" in the Security & Privacy preference pane, or it needs to be removed, then restarted and re-added when prompted by SD.

Yes, the 1 backups are fine.

The 2 backups are usable but won't boot. The data is there (use Finder's Go To Folder to open /Volumes, you'll see the data volume there). To use them to get...

Periodic tasks run by launchd need a spec, in their plist, for when they should run. One daemon can either run "forever" and then schedule internally - which would take more resources, and kind of go...

It is neither manic nor frantic - once a minute only 1440 times a day. It's just not much logging, Dan. You should see what the OS is doing!

That's totally normal. It's a few lines, once a minute. Not frantic. That's how ASL logging works.

We could already deal with Catalina up until 10.15.5, Jim. They broke 3rd party firmlink creation in that version, so now we need to use alternate methods to create the initial copy.

Again, I don't know what "frantic activity" in this case means, Dan. I'd really need to see the logging...but I can say for sure it had nothing to do with the drive being 'busy'.

sdbackupbytime is doing nothing after a backup that's different than what it does normally. If you're seeing differently, I'd need to see the logging.

sdbackupbytime does not do disk activity, so I don't think that was it. The activity was either Spotlight or an antivirus program.

If you have sample logging from that, though, send it in to the...

That doesn't make sense. We don't copy the system volume if it's not changed (we don't even evaluate it), so there's no need to skip it: you're effectively doing what you're suggesting already.
