The adapter listens for events from Network Configuration Manager, such as, device create events, and certain device state change events, and also events from Smarts Manager that indicates new devices have been added.

These events trigger the adapter to complete the same reconciliation and “diff” logic as the batch synchronization. As with the batch synchronization operation, devices that are added to Network Configuration Manager that cannot be matched with existing Smarts Manager devices, are put on the Smarts Manager pending list. Devices that are added to Smarts Manager that cannot be matched with existing Network Configuration Manager devices, are set up for discovery operations in Network Configuration Manager.
