Xtract Table - Time Limit Exceeded


The extraction of an SAP table is aborted and terminated with the following error:
RfcReceiveEx failed(RFC_SYS_EXCEPTION) RFC_ERROR_SYSTEM_FAILURE - Time limit exceeded


The system-wide SAP parameter rdisp/max_wprun_time for the maximum duration of RFC connections is exceeded. This termination is controlled by the SAP source system and mainly affects large or continuously growing SAP tables.

Note that as of release 7.40, a more precise setting is available using the SAP parameter rdisp/scheduler/prio_normal/max_runtime, see SAP Note 25528.


The following options are available to avoid the error:

1. Instead of executing the extraction in a dialog mode, the extraction can be executed as a background job using the custom function module Z_THEO_READ_TABLE in version 2.10 or higher.
Import the function module into the SAP source system and activate the background function in the extraction settings. The transport request for the custom function module Z_THEO_READ_TABLE can be found in the following installation path: 
C:\Program Files\[Xtract Product]\ABAP\Z_THEO_READ_TABLE-transport.zip.

2. Alternatively, you can manually increase the SAP parameter by the SAP Basis team. Note that this is a system-wide adaptation of the RFC runtime parameter rdisp/max_wprun_time.
