Thanks for the reply, good time to update my findings.

The output, std out, is on a root terminal, I will use sudo, that may
solve that issue.

It is interesting that I have not seen this before..that said I think
using multiple vm's, pausing, starting, uses all memory, mostly cached.

My limited understanding to date, the memory pressure relief is
recovering pages from the cache that are released from vm's no longer

No performance issues, maybe the new update is logging to std out
instead of some log elsewhere that I never check .
