Help me understand RFC, idocs and batch

Hello community,

I would like to understand how to approach performance testing for SAP interfaces. i have identified 3 core ways to communicate between SAP and non SAP systems...RFC, idocs and batch.

Individually, please feel free to answer some or all of the questions.

RFC, and idocs

Starting with RFC, and idocs, I would like to be able to emulate these communications via an automation script.

Here are a list of questions which Id be grateful if you could answer.

Question 1

When an RFC or idocs communication coming from a non SAP system is sent to SAP, What is the endpoint (where exactly do i fire the message off to)?

For example, when you make a webservices call using SOAP/XML the message gets sent to a URL endpoint on the webserver.

Question 2

When an RFC or idocs communication coming from a SAP system to a non SAP system, are these messages typically triggered when execution specific T-Codes?


Question 3

Is there a way I can get example inbound/outbound RFC and idocs messages?

I think for idocs I can use T-Code: WE02


Batch


Question 4

I understand Batch operations can be triggered using T:Code SM36. Can this be used for both inbound & outbound batch between SAP and non SAP

systems.

Question 5

I understand Batch operations can be monitored using T:Code SM37, will this enable me to see every single inbound/outbound batch job interacting with SAP?

Question 6

Do some companies have their batches running in/out of SAP in such a way that it doesnt even use SM36? And how is this achieved?
