What happens when an external data source opens?

What happens when one file opens another file as an external data source?

 

Do script triggers run? When does authentication happen?

 

It seems like the connection to the remote file is established only once a layout or script tries to use remote data; is that right?

 

I've heard some discussion on this, but I haven't found a definitive reference.

 

I'm trying to eliminate some beachballs that seem to correspond to one file accessing data from another file. Everything is on Server 13. I'm wondering if the hangup is on some startup script, or waiting for LDAP, or something else…
