Why? Threads are not restarted, only teams (processes). Also I don't think that knowledge of which team is auto-restarting is ProcessController task.

Correct, I was meaning teams of course. It's just that I find the message a bit misleading - it makes one think that the process would be killed while in reality it wouldn't.

Process is actually killed. launch_daemon creates new process. Restart should be done in tools like Services. Each software has its own domain of responsibility.

Also process restarting is emergency behavior that it intended to recover crashed service. It is not regular way to restart service and can cause data loss.
