Do you mean the code in OPAL/event? If so, it's a customised libevent. I've seen it used in OpenMPI to poll/select open sockets, it allows the programmer register their own callback functions for when this happens. Just ignore me if this wasn't what you were asking about though :-)

What is the purpose of the event library? I'd happily RTFM if someone could point me in that direction! :^)
I'm guessing it's to check occasionally for "unexpected events", but if someone could confirm/deny and flesh that picture out a little, I'd appreciate it.
