Event notifications start to run before batch device synchronization has run, but notifications may not be associated with the correct devices before the adapter has a chance to reconcile devices between the systems.

The notification console in Smarts Manager typically receives SNMP notifications. The events received from Network Configuration Manager differ only in the delivery method. The adapter processes the events, and uses the mapping generated during reconciliation to associate events with the correct Smarts Manager device. The events are delivered by way of an API. Therefore, the SNMP notification adapter for Network Configuration Manager is not required for this adapter.
