File creation notification?

» close window

The Question is:

It is possible to run an automatic ftp when creating a new file on a VMS System ?
Thanks for your answer.

The Answer is :

  Yes, this can be implemented using security audits and a process receiving
  these audits via an auditing mailbox, but that is likely more work to
  create and set this up and then process these notifications than the
  effort would be worth -- OpenVMS does not presently provide a generic
  notification ACL, which would be the most obvious implementation for
  an OpenVMS-based solution here.
  The easiest approach for this likely involves periodically polling the
  directory (usually with the filename that is the target for the directory
  scan established via a RENAME operation) or the addition of notification
  from the creating application to the transfer tool.
  The use of FTP is not relevent, this could involve be most any operation
  on the newly-detected/newly-created file.
