    Since upgrading from 10.13.3 Supplemental to full version 10.13.4 the Console is getting overloaded with error messages about signpost_notificationd. The process is at root level.
    Anyone else experiencing same? Is there a fix and if so how?

    I'm seeing this same error. It occurs at the top of the hour when my computer won't respond for a minute or so.
    I also re-installed the OS just today. No help, still getting the error message and the freeze-up.

    Temporary Solution >> open activity Monitor >> search signpost_notificationd >> Note amount of Memory used by this process >> FORCE QUIT signpost_notificationd >> wait a bit >> note memory drops>> close Activity Monitor >> open Console. Should not see the error messages about signpost_noticicationd. This temporary solution will ONLY work until the next cold boot or restart.
    Apple has been aware of this issue since April 4, 2018 when I reported and uploaded via App they sent me, Uploaded for a week and never had any followup so what is next I do not know. Seems connected to the re-write of Metal2 for 10.13.4 to support eGPU
