The Event Server manages file-based events. When you set up a file-based event within BusinessObjects Enterprise, the Event Server monitors the directory that you specified. When the appropriate file appears in the monitored directory, the Event Server triggers your file-based event: that is, the Event Server notifies the Central Management Server ( CMS ) that the file-based event has occurred. The CMS can then start any jobs that are dependent upon the file-based event.
Schedule-based and custom events are managed through the CMS.
