If I were to have a file/directory monitor task running every minute throughout the day, would this be cpu intensive? I want to know if it would be a good idea to have a directory monitored for a file to be dropped every minute for a span of 10 hours a day. This would include multiple monitor tasks, not just one.

Thanks

Yes, it would be CPU intensive, but you can monitor the task manager and see how much. It just depends on your PC/server capabilities.

Another thing to do with running tasks every minute is to restart the engine every night using a mantainance restart task. Fresh engine daily prevents clogging/slow engine and improves performance.

Awesome tip about the maintenance restart task. I'll add that ASAP. Thanks for the reply, I guess I'll start testing and see how we work this project.
