Hello Ray,

As per my understanding, you are correct. Interceptors get invoked after source.

I'd like to know if an interceptor gets invoked before or after the source is invoked

I'm using a custom interceptor in my solution to drop events and I have some custom logic in my source to report stats, and it seems to me that the source was getting invoked for the events that should've been dropped by the interceptor, however these events didn't appear in the channel which is what I expected, but it looks to me inteceptors are sitting between a source and a channel rather than it being invoked before a source.  Is that correct and how it was intended?
