    What does the Events Dispatcher do?

    • Uploads events to the database
    • Watches C:\Program Files\AppSense\Management Center\Server\Web Site\Deployment\Events for uploaded events via BITS from endpoints
    • Monitors the below directories, keeping them in sync with the database.
      • C:\Program Files\AppSense\Management Center\Server\Web Site\Deployment\Packages
      • C:\Program Files\AppSense\Management Center\Server\Web Site\Downloads
    • Adding new packages when added via the console or SCU. Re-adding them if deleted by mistake
