Fix all missing/vanished services -- can this be done periodically?

for one environment we constantly see missing/vanished services.
is there any way to schedule “fixing all missing vanished services” so as to avoid the strange service alerts that pop up?

I would look at creating a rule for a “Periodic service discovery”.

We have some dynamic services and we use this to ignore state changes and to automatically add/subtract services.

However, in our case it is specific. We know and can match on the service names that are allowed to “come and go”.

Edit: we also use this to handle VMs that come and go in Vcenter (VMware), noting also that we do not attempt to track VMs per hypervisor node since they are allowed to float. We don’t mind having the piggyback data, but I don’t want alerts as VMs vmotion and such.
