Service Manager - restart servers if tickets stop coming in

I haven't seen this online but I was curious if there was a script or something I can do to when service manager does not show new tickets to reboot two servers. At the very least, if no new IR tickets have not been created in a certain period of time, then it would send an alert to an email address so we can reboot our two servers ourselves.

    Hi @Aaron Brown ,

    instead of rebooting the SCSM Servers I would recommend to find the root cause of "no new incidents are created".

    But anyway:
    You could use a PowerShell script and the Task scheduler to get this done.
    With using the SMLets cmdlets for SCSM it's possible to get the latest Incident. If created date of the incident is greater than x hours restart the server.
