Pausing and resuming the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator

The BlackBerry® Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator begins simulating the BlackBerry® Infrastructure and BlackBerry devices as soon as it starts. The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator updates the counters and generates messages based on the timer settings in a workload profile.

You can pause the simulation. When you pause the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator, the simulator stops sending messages from simulated BlackBerry devices. The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator still receives messages from the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server. You can pause the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator in order to adjust a setting on the messaging server, the load generator, or the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. When you resume the simulation, the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator resumes sending messages from simulated BlackBerry devices.

If you have configured your BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator to send many messages, the simulator stores messages in a queue. When you pause the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator, it sends the messages in the queue but creates no new ones.

When you save a workload profile, even while the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator is paused, the simulator automatically starts sending messages again. The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator exits the paused state.
