Customer Question: Who has higher hand? FileProcessingMaxDepth Parameter set in Ini file of an Agent set to 1 or filewatcher Event that has the "Include sub-directories" checked in File System tab.

This parameter specifies the maximum level of sub-directories for FileSystem events. "1" means the files are only searched in the search directory. Sub-directories are not included in this search.


We have tested this case extensively and the setting in the Agent INI file has priority over the setting in file event.
