Could you please let me know how schedulers like CA7, Control-M detect when a file is created on the system.
Schedulers trigger jobs when a dataset is created. I am trying to understand how they do it. Do they have some sort of started task that monitors file creation event 'somehow?' api hook into zOS or something.
Would it be possible to mimic it with a user started task. This is for an experiment in academic server. Not on client system.

LOL - you beat me to it; sample IEFU83 code can be found in SYS1.SAMPLIB as member IEEU83 (note the member name is different). You'll need to make sure the exit is compiled with the right options and that the SMFPRMxx member supports IEF783 (either explicitly or implicitly).
