The 'chase' utility should be configurable such that checking jobs on a server/agent known to be unavailable can be disabled.

We have seen a server which had ~400 jobs running on it at the time it crashed causing the 'chase' utility run time to increase from around 5 minutes to over 3 hours. Looking at the chase output an attempt was made to check each job still running despite the server being known to be unavailable and the event log showing it had been taken offline.

Also, the output should include time stamps for each action being taken or at least for each connection to a new server.
