Analyzing Trace Output

Use

If a user has activated the trace, Smart Forms creates a trace every time this user calls a Smart Form, even if they have left transaction SFTRACE. The trace can be viewed in the system or downloaded as a file in this transaction.

Prerequisites

You have activated and configured the trace and created a trace run. You have updated the table in the Traces in the database frame.

Procedure

All trace runs stored on the database are displayed in the Traces in the database frame.

Displaying the Trace in the System

  1. Select a line using the pushbuttons on the left side of the table.
  2. Choose Display Trace.
  3. In the default setting, the trace is only displayed to trace level 15 (document information) at first. To show other levels, use the pushbuttons in the application toolbar.

Exporting the Trace into a Local File

  1. Select a line using the pushbuttons on the left side of the table.
  2. Choose Export.

You can now store the whole trace locally on your PC using a file dialog.

Once stored, trace files can be displayed again in the system using the Read trace from local file function.
