Is there a way (or exit point) to be notified that a file has landed so I can start my file processing with no manual intervention?

If using a script to transfer the file you can check the exit code after the file transfer to see if there were any errors, but you would need to switch to a terminal(ssh) connection or remote command in order to execute/start any file processing, because SFTP, and SCP doesn't allow for execution of OS scripts, or applications.

Or if pulling a file (get command) you could check the exit code, and then if 0 then start the processing locally.

Without knowing more about your environment or how often files are updated or over written there maybe other measures you should take in order to be completely sure that your processing the fully transferred and an corrupted file though.
