Is it possible to trigger an event in linux , whenever a particular servlet is requested in the tomcat which is running on that linux machine. Because there is a need for some backend jobs to be done which need not require request & response objects which unnecesserily increase the server load.

You can execute an arbitrary program from a servlet with Runtime.exec() - it will run as whatever user Tomcat runs as. Does that meet your need to "trigger an event"?
