Trace Files and Log Files

When you use RFC for communications, security-relevant data can be recorded in trace files. You must handle access to these trace files as restrictively as possible. In the SAP system, RFC runtime information is recorded in the following trace files:

?     RFC Traces


?     Work Process Traces


?     Gateway Traces


The dev_ref<n> traces are also traced on the external RFC server. The generation of additional traces depends on the concepts used externally.
