Need to Track an abap program execution

Hello Everyone,

I've a unique requirement. I seek some advice.

I need to track.. how a particular program of abap executed. I mean, we see in debugger, It skips some lines, fails some conditions, checks some

conditions or selects data. I need to know how that executed line by line. i.e. A complete execution path of statements which actually executed in a particular program.

So far, I saw SCAN keyword but that only searches ABAP program. I need to track its execution. In simple words, I need a written recording of debugger execution of any program.

Any suggestions.

    Working for SAP Labs you should have access to internal information resources that we outsiders can only dream about, one would guess.

    Anyway, have a look at this blog by @Olga Dolinskaja

    Next Generation ABAP Runtime Analysis (SAT) – How to analyze program flow

    This isn't tracking every single line though, only statements that are relevant for runtime measurement.
