Using SUBTASK_AUTO has a very low cost. By using a subtask to cycle through the commands, there is very little overhead, and this likely uses fewer resources than setting up a scheduled job to run every hour and issuing a STATUS console command or running some other process that wakes up every hour to issue the command.
