1)You mean you want Splunk to automatically restart if it stops? Need to know what OS you have if so.

2) see the documentation here:

3)see the documentation here:

Sure edit crontab for the Splunk boot user...

Ex:

 sudo -u splunk -i
 crontab -e

Add an entry in crontab...

 0 0 * * * /opt/splunk/bin/splunk restart

Above would restart every night at midnight.
