Running it with format "directory" produced something I cannot import form the 
host application. So I aborted that.

Running it now and recording with Instruments. Guess I'll have to leave it 
cooking for the full procedure but I've added an initial one to pastebin.

Sent this with screenshot attached first but don't think the list supports 
that... So here's a screenshot from instruments after running for a few mins.

Can you get a profile of where the machine is spending its time during the

You could use Activity Monitor, but as far as I can see that just captures
short-duration snapshots, which might not be representative of a 10-hour
run.  XCode's Instruments feature would probably be better about giving
a full picture, but it has a steep learning curve.

macOS's "sample" is pretty easy to use and produces text format output
that is easy to email.

Ah, good idea.  But note that only traces one process, so you'd need to
first determine whether it's pg_dump or the backend that's eating most
of the CPU.  Or sample both of them.
