In procexp (Process Explorer), we can suspend & resume back a process.
What's the equivalent command or tools to do this?
In our AV suit, I'll need to distribute the scan across Mon-Sat but to do this
from the AV's management console, it involves a lot of manual efforts &
each time a new VM is provisioned, have to keep track.
So I thought of using a random function that generates 0 to 4 that saves
this number into the thousands of Windows VMs & then use a script
to suspend & resume the coreShellService process (the AV process)
0 to 5 days later when the manual weekly scan commences on Mon
With command line AV scanner, I could use Unix Shell scripts to do
this with a random function & make the script sleep 0 to 5 days before
'waking' up to trigger the manual scan.
This will minimize the chance of an AV scan storm which suddenly
chews up a lot of resource across the vSphere cluster
