Pause agent zenwork services?


Is there a  way to stop all Zenworks services on the pc running the Windows agent?

Some of our PC needs all CPU ressources available, and sometimes Zenwork is eating too much CPU.

I know that I could stop services with powershell and such, but I want to make sure I stop the right services and also restart them at the end of the day.

Any ideas what I could do?

ZCM should use little if any resources unless it is actively doing something.  

May want to look to see when you schedule stuff such as "Inventory Scan", "Patch Scans", etc....

Make sure you have proper AV Exclusions, so that when those thing run....

You can also configure most pushes to prompt the user, so the user could optionally accept them, or configure them to run during off hours when nobody is logged in.
