Zenworks Patch Management service status|start|stop|restart feature

It would be nice to add the Patch management service status|start|stop|restart feature, this would help us for troubleshooting patch management related issues.

We had a situation that the ZCM DB was growing 4GB per hour, this was just because of ZPM related issue, and we wanted to stop the ZPM specific services on the server, but as of now we have only 2 options that we can do something for the ZPM services.

1) We can "Reset the Zenworks Patch management settings"
ZCC-> Configuration-> Patch Management -> Subscription Service Information
But as we know, resetting ZENworks Patch Management will clear all data, deployments and any other settings associated with patching. All custom patches will also be deleted. So this is not a good idea.

2) We can deactivate the Zenworks Patch management product license.
ZCC-> Configuration-> Product Licensing -> ZENworks Patch Management -> Deactivate product
I am not sure what would be the other impact on the ZCM production environment, if we disable ZPM product license for temporary purpose.
