Monitor User Sessions


When you monitor a system, you can use this function in addition to the User Overview to analyze the system’s work load via the users. You can:

·        Filter and sort the list

·        Update the display

·        Display user information

·        Display the memory requirements for the users

·        Activate/deactivate and display the user trace


You are already in the User List screen (Transaction SM04).


The following table gives you an overview of the monitoring functions and the menu paths (and buttons).
