Machines should not ever drop out of the pool when Quill is enabled -
on the execute/worker nodes, the Quill load is negligible - they write
out a few lines to a local file, and the Quill daemon on that machine
reads it and sends it over the network to a database. The startd never
blocks or even really knows if Quill exists.
Now, if your Postgres database is running on the same machine as your
central manager, then perhaps the load on the machine from both the
database and the collector/central manager is causing updates to be

It could be a security setting problem - exiting with status 4 means
the daemon decided that something was wrong. However, if load on the
machine is sky-high at the time it could explain why the parent
process of the quill daemon didn't answer for the initial keep-alive.
Is the log below from same machine that hosts the central manger?
