RFC communication with SAP can be recorded by tracing for troubleshooting purposes.
Standard logging is always active and is independent of the tracing setting.

Warning!: Increase of used hard drive memory
A huge amount of information is collected when debug logging is activated. This can decrease the capacity of your hard drives dramatically. Activate the debug logging only when necessary, e.g., upon request of the support team.
