Use this function to define the components for which you want to display raw statistical data and, if appropriate, traces. The creation of the raw statistical data and the writing of the traces is independent of this system selection. The system selection is used primarily to display data for specific systems so that the interface is structured in as clear a way as possible.

The following functions are also available to you:

  • You can check which components are entered in the CCMS System Component Repository (SCR).
  • You can save and recall a total of five different sets, each of which contains a set of monitored systems.

In the system selection, you define the systems from which statistics records are read. In addition to system selection, you use data selection to define a time period for reading the statistics records. The raw statistics records are read for this period for the systems specified in the system selection.

You can also specify parameters in the data selection with which you can also filter the raw statistics records, such as by initial user and initial system. The system displays the filtered statistics records in the analysis view.

With system selection, you can also access the systems that are known to the Solution Manager and, in this way you can, for example, monitor all systems that are assigned a particular business process. However, for this it is necessary that you specify the RFC destination and the name of the data model of the Solution Manager. Choose SolMan to do this. The utilized data model is CBP Data Model.

  • Before you can analyze statistical and trace data from remote components with the functional trace, system data (such as the RFC destination) must be known. You can enter this data in the table manually, or call it up using Systems.
  • To be able to analyze individual statistics records from ABAP systems, the function group SAPWL_GLOB_STAT must exist in the corresponding system. The function group SAPWL_GLOB_STAT is available as of SAP Basis 4.0B.
  • To be able to display traces from ABAP systems, the function group SAPWL_GLOB_TRACE must exist in the corresponding system. The function group SAPWL_GLOB_STAT is available as of SAP Basis 4.6B.

To select and analyze systems, proceed as follows:

  1. Start the functional trace by choosing Administration → CCMS → Control/Monitoring →  Performance → Workload → STATTRACE - Statistics Records (All) and Traces or with transaction STATTRACE.
  2. Choose System Selection.

    The system displays the current system list. To display another system list, choose an entry in the Systems menu. The Features section below contains detailed information about this menu and the structure of system lists.

  3. Make changes to the displayed list if required. You can, for example, (de)activate systems or add new systems. You can also create a new list and save it as a set.
  4. To start an analysis for the selected systems of a list, choose Apply.

    The system first performs a consistency check of the destination to the monitoring system. If the consistency check fails for an entry, this entry is deactivated and a message is created for the application log. The raw statistics data is filtered in accordance with the analysis data entered using data selection.


To obtain a selection of components that can be monitored, choose the Systems menu. The menu has the following entries:

Entry Meaning


Includes the local ABAP system and all components for which statistical data is collected in this ABAP system. DSR statistical data is collected in the system with which the NetWeaver management agent that is responsible for the transfer is registered.


Lists all components that are registered in the SCR. This is both ABAP systems and non-ABAP systems (DSR components).

Solution Manager

Shows all components that are known to the Solution Manager. The system first displays a table with the available Solutions. Choose the desired Solution. The associated systems are then displayed.

You can also select systems that belong to a particular business process. To do this, choose Business Processes.. Choose the desired process and the desired system.

Set No. 1 - 5

Lists the components that you have previously saved as one of the five possible sets.

Current List

Contains those components that were active when the system selection was called.

The following data is displayed for the selected components:

Column Meaning


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

Component Name

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

Mon. Sys. Dest.

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 monitoring system is known; access to the statistical data of the monitoring system is then performed indirectly through this intermediate system


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

  • The specifications for component name, component type, and the name of monitoring system are mandatory.
  • An empty field for a destination and the entry NONE are equivalent.
  • Ensure that you use the correct notation for all fields of the table (upper- and lower-case).

You can change the specified data in the table. To save the table contents to the database, choose the Save menu and one of the five sets available.
