File Polling on several directories.


Using file polling, can I poll on multiple directories. That is one file polling service has to monitor serveral directories. If so, how do I mention the monitor directories.

Thanks in advance,

No. One file polling port, one directory.

I appreciate your reply Rob.


Rob is correct, as usual.

However, it might be worth mentioning that you can turn on recursive polling (“Allow Recursive Polling” = ‘yes’) and then point the port to a parent-level directory. Then, in your processing service, make some determination as to which sub-directory the file came from and invoke specific logic at that point.

I get the impression that’s not what you’re trying to do …


My response was incomplete. Thanks for filling in the gap Curtis!
