what's the best way to creating a polling job?

I want to run a query every X number of minutes to poll for certain conditions in a database.

I was looking at using either an event timer or execute recurring, but I have some concerns with these methods.  If I use either, the job runs continuously based on the calendar tab for the event or a period for the recurring execution, but say the job gets stopped; will the calendar or period automatically start them again?

With schedules, if something happens, say Automic gets shut down for whatever reason, once its back up, they will resume execution of objects.  Is there any way to have an event timer or recurring execution automatically pick back up as well?

Thank you for any advice and help!
