PI-Notifications as Eventpipes

My understanding is that in AF, there is no eventpipes for creating event driven processes. I am interested in creating event frames and right now, to create event frames, they would need to be created programmatically. My first thought would be to use the PI SDK and event pipes to trigger the event to create or update an event frame. My question is, would it be feasible to create a process that receives a notification that would be used to create or update an event frame? Is it the intent of notifications to be used in a similiar manner that eventpipes are used?


Also, more of questions. It appears that eventpipes update on new recorded archive values(not new snapshot values). I believe notifications triggers on snapshot?
