Automate Restarting of Self-Stopped Agents

Currently, we start all agents manually. Could we have say a batch file we can run on autosys or a scheduler built in within the management server to automatically restart self-stopped agents? This is going to be particularly helpful specially for non persistent VDIs because what's happening now is that if the agent self-stops and the image gets rolled back to master image, when that VDI is served again to a different user, the agent is not allowed to start due to being self-stopped before. Hence, we lose data for the new user.

    The need based on the comment is to disable the automatic 'self-stop' feature from the Agent

    Below are the key requirements from my perspective and it would be great if Aternity could provide the ability to control agent states from a restful / SOAP api.   I don't want to have the self-stopped feature removed as it may be an indication of a poorly written signature or high-performance activity happening on the system.  

    Key Requirements

    - Control to automatically re-enable self-stopped agents (Control on when the agents are enabled based on the metric that caused the agent to be in a self stopped state. Example if the CPU / Memory utilization was too high the agent would re-enable after the CPU / Memory levels have stabilized)

    - Daily report of Agents that were "self-stopped" and re-enabled back to "active" status
