Serv-U Event Details  -  KB Article #2056

Related Articles --

Serv-U supports custom event handling, allowing administrators to receive up-to-date information about the state of their file server in real-time. By licensing Serv-U MFT Server and activating this functionality it is possible to configure various types of triggers to active various actions within Serv-U. For details on how to configure Serv-U Events, see KB Article #1783. For a full list of all events and their function, read below.

Server Events

  • Server Start - Triggered by Serv-U starting up, whether by starting the Serv-U service or starting Serv-U as an application.
  • Server Stop - Triggered by Serv-U shutting down, whether from service or application-level status. This event will only trigger for graceful stops.

Server and Domain Events

  • Domain Start - Triggered by a Serv-U Domain starting, via the "Enable Domain" setting in the "Domain Details | Settings" menu or as part of normal server startup.
