RFC Task type

Hi,

Can any1 tell me how different is task type RFC ( in ST03N) than the task type dialog.

Which activity is recorded in RFC task type. For eg. if DIA makes an rfc call, is it recored in RFC task type too along with DIA?

Why response time of RFC task type doesn't include roll wait time when DIA task type includes it.

Regards,

Hussain.

    The RFC step is the log of the actual RFC.

    Think of an RFC as a client->server call. Each have of the communication writes statistics records. The client writes a dialog step record. The server writes an RFC step records.

    The dialog step is recorded on the instance where the client executed. The RFC step is recorded on the instance where the server executed.

    You can see this more easily in STAD. The dialog step will have 'rfc client' sub-records that record the 'callers' statistics. The RFC step will have 'rfc server' sub--records that record the 'callees' statistics.

    The blogs explain this in more detail:
