The BASEDIR/smarts/conf/ics/ics-default.xml file is the configuration file for the Global Manager. This file designates which dxa files are used to transfer events and topology from the Network-Resource Manager, IP-Perspective Manager, and IP-Analysis Manager into the Global Manager. The ics-default.xml file contains a separate section for each of the three Domain Managers. Each section indicates the dxa file that is used for that particular Domain Manager.

In this example, the ics-default.xml file sets dxa-net-rm-conn-perf.conf as the dxa file that defines which topology and events to transfer from a Network-Resource-Suite to the Global Manager.
