    Hi Dipak,

    As per my opinion:

    1. QRFC is preferred method when you integrate SAP ECC and SAP TM with SAP EM.  Just check this table as IDOC will not fetch event handler data.  The advantage of using IDOC you can trigger exception handling.  However, qRFC is missing this factor but you can implement CCMS monitoring for queue failures, stuck, Running status for long etc.


    IDoc Type



    Sending event messages



    1. EventHandler.AddEventMessages02

    Fetching event handler data

    No IDoc available


    1. EventHandler.GetData

    Creating or updating event handlers



    1. EventHandler.PostEventHandler

    Source: SAP

    2. There was a discussion on this and Stefan confirmed that we can have SAP EM on SAP TM SAP Netweaver box.  However, prefer to have it as separate server (due to volume of events processing) or at least separate client on SAP TM.  This rule also applies to SAP ECC but if you are using both SAP ECC and SAP TM then preferable would be on SAP TM box.  Also check this article SAP Event Management - Six Key Things To Consider During Server Sizing.

    Also, you can wait for other members comment, they can also give you some insights on this.
