Saver not running

I am facing a strange problem under my FreeBSD 12-CURRENT installation atop cloned/migrated ZFS. Beastie is not running : I do not remember Beastie having run even once since ZFS migration a week back (100% sure) and quite possibly, ever since the original installation was made a month back on a UFS slice (99% sure).

Beastie is enabled in rc.conf as well as kldloaded :

/home/unix # cat /etc/rc.conf | egrep '(beastie|saver)'

/home/unix # kldstat | egrep '(beastie|saver)'
16    1 0xffffffff828fa000 2fd5     beastie_saver.ko

But the saviour does not run, even when the console is inactive for hours. /var/log/messages does not indicate any problem.

This is as much a piquant problem as a personal tragedy. Over the last month, I have seen and felt increasing dissociation/disenchantment in my cat. Tinkerbell, who used to purr and curdle up next to me so much, has now started keeping away, sometimes even glaring in disgust at me. She does not even consume her dose of catnip.

I request advice on how to fix things. I also request a word of consolation for my cat.

Thank you.
