The Variable RejectionCountTotal totalises the number of times a rejection device was triggered to reject since the last time the total was reset to zero using the Method ResetRejectionTotals, see below.

The Value of the Variable RejectionCountTotal shall be persisted both in the OPC UA Server and in the underlying system so that, if one fails and/or is replaced, the other will allow restoring the Value when the OPC UA Server and underlying system are on separate hardware infrastructure.
