How can I tell when a trigger event has completed?

I have spent the last hour and a half searching the documentation and this forum, and I have not found anything.

I am using a E8267D vector signal generator, and I have a rather long bursted waveform file loaded into the unit. It takes about 4 seconds for the file to run completely out of the instrument.

I am using external software to automate the triggering of this device using the SCPI telnet interface. But I am having trouble keeping multiple threads in my software synchronized, and I was hoping there is some register that I can query on the device that would indicate when the file is done being run. Is my only option to do an external wait for my estimated 4 seconds? I would much rather poll a register (or even use an event off the instrument) to know when I need to do the next step in my processing.

Is there any status register that I can read that will tell me this?

Thanks.
