FIleMaker Server 14 error detection

I have a FileMaker Server 14 crash that has as consequence users with spinning wheels and unable to work and users building up on the admin console.

 

I can't disconnect the users or solve this problem through the admin console.

 

I created a batch file where I kill the Java and FileMaker Server processes and then restart the FileMaker service.

 

What I need to know is if there is a way to detect the crash (no event created by FM until the number of users is exceeded) and thus run the batch file.

 

Maybe there is a plug in that analyses the strings (duplicate users) in the console?

 

Maybe a filemaker robot with system level scripts?

 

Until I find what is causing the crashes I must create a mechanism so that my client doesn't have to call me.
