 Example: System Selection with Indirect DestinationLocate this document in the navigation structure


The indirect destination is the RFC destination of an SAP System (such as the Solution Manager system), in which the destination of the monitoring system (monitored system) is known. The statistical data for the monitored system is then accessed indirectly using this intermediary system.

For example, you have three ABAP systems: A, B, and C, and you want to monitor systems B and C from system A. The RFC destination of system C is, however, only known to system B. In this case, the destination of system A to system B is the indirect destination. To create a system list in the system selection for this example, follow the procedure below:

  1. Open the functional trace using transaction STATTRACE.
  2. Choose System Selection →   Systems and then any free set.
  3. Insert three rows by choosing Insert Rows; one for each system. The columns of the rows mean the following:


Column Description


Indicator with which you can activate and deactivate the analysis of the component


Component name (from the SCR) and, for ABAP systems, the name of the system

Comp. Type

Name of the component type (from the SCR) and, for ABAP Systems, the entry SAP R/3


Monitoring system in which the statistical data of the component is collected; for ABAP systems, the system itself

Dest. MonSys

RFC destination of the monitoring system; this entry is empty if the monitoring system is the local ABAP system

Indirect Dest.

RFC destination of an ABAP system (for example, the system of the Solution Manager) in which the destination of the monitored system is known; access to the statistical data of the monitored system is then performed indirectly through this intermediate system


Release of the SAP Web Application Servers; the system makes this entry automatically

  1. Enter A, B, and C as component names.
  2. Enter the component type, in this case SAP R/3.
  3. Specify the system in which the statistics records are collected as the monitoring system for the system.

    For ABAP systems, this is always the system itself, that is, for system A, enter A as the monitoring system, entering the monitoring system B for system B, and so on.

  4. The fields RFC Destination to the monitoring system (Dest.MonSys) and Indirect Destination for the Monitoring System (Ind. Dest.) remain empty in the row for system A, because it is the local system.
  5. In the row for system B, enter the RFC destination from system A to system B in the Dest. MonSys field. Ind. Dest remains empty, since you are not using an indirect destination in this case.
  6. In the row for system C, enter the RFC destination from system A to system B as the Ind. Dest and the RFC destination from B to C as Dest. MonSys
  7. Finally, activate all systems in the Activated column and save the set.
