You configure systems that are installed in your system landscape to periodically register themselves at the SLD.
Depending on the type of system, there are the following ways to send system data to the SLD.
Connecting AS ABAP Systems to the SLD
An ABAP-based SLD data supplier uses an RFC connection to send data about an AS ABAP system to the SLD bridge by means of a gateway.
The ABAP-based SLD data supplier (transaction RZ70) is available for all SAP systems as of SAP Basis release 4.0B.
For more information, see Connecting AS ABAP Systems to the SLD .
Connecting AS Java Systems to the SLD
A Java EE based SLD data supplier uses HTTP to send data about an AS Java system to the SLD.
The Java EE based SLD data supplier is available for all AS Java systems as of SAP NetWeaver release 6.40.
For more information, see Connecting AS Java Systems to the SLD .
Connecting Other Systems to the SLD
Systems that are neither ABAP nor Java EE based use the sldreg executable to send data to the SLD.
