HTCondor can be made smarter about this. It collects basic information about all processes on the system (pid, ppid, cpu/memory usage), constructs a tree of parent-child relationships, then queries this data for various purposes.
These are mainly tracking the cpu/memory usage of jobs while they run and identifying the descendants of an HTCondor daemon or job so that they can be killed along with the ancestor.
task_for_pid() is used to collect the cpu and memory usage of each process. HTCondor doesn't need to collect that for system processes. If we could identify SIP-protected processes and skip the task_for_pid() call for them, I believe that would eliminate the system log spam.
Unfortunately, my Mac died right around when this email thread began, so I can't work on a fix at the moment.

I instinctively recoil at circumventing security features on this machine, but you have a point; I will mull on it.
BTW, this error comes from procd trying to call task_for_pid which is now heavily regulated.
