Hi all, I am trying to find out if the impact of file events as opposed to External Dependencies with regard to CP and WP processes. Basically I'm looking to see is a file event is harder on system resources.  Does the external event tag the DB, as I see that it looks at stats rather than querying the DB.  Also, if a file event does tag the DB via the MQMEM message queue is that harder on system resource. Anybody know the ins and oust of system resource regarding these two objects?
