To be able to access the trend information while the device is no longer being polled we put the element to a paused state.
When an element is paused will it drop all the connections between the DMA and the device or will it only pause the communication?
Michiel, when an element gets paused no actions are done on the open connections. This means that if the connection was open, it will remain open. Note that when an element is in paused state after a DataMiner restart, it does not mean the connection will be initiated, because typically this gets done when a first command is sent.
