Procedure documentation Activating Traces Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

You can activate the trace function for the gateway and for external programs.


You have the following options via the menu option Goto Trace Gateway:

        Display File / Reset File

You can display or reset the gateway trace file (gateway reader, default name of trace file: dev_rd).


Every time the gateway is restarted, the old trace file is stored under the name <name>.old(therefore, usually dev_rd.old). The dev_rd file is overwritten.

        Save as Local File

You can download the trace file onto your local computer.

        Increase Level / Decrease Level

You can increase ore reduce the trace level (for details see parameter rdisp/TRACE).

        Use trace logging to locate sporadic or tricky errors. This is described in detail in the documentation: Structure linkTrace Logging.

External Programs

You can activate and deactivate tracing for communication with external programs by choosing Goto Trace External programs Activate or Deactivate.
