The server-to-client messaging library I like and recommend is S (via N). After your server script is done generating the file that is being streamed for download your last line in that script can emit a message to S which sends a notification to the client.

The benefit of using this method over others is that you are able to detect a ‘true’ finish event after the streaming is done.
