lr_resume_transaction

Resumes reporting transaction data within a script.

C Language

void lr_resume_transaction( char *transaction_name);
Example: lr_stop_transaction and lr_resume_transaction Transaction Functions

Arguments

Name Comments
transaction_name The name of the transaction.

This function is retained for backward compatibility. For more general ways of reporting partial transaction durations, see lr_start_sub_transaction and lr_set_transaction.

The lr_resume_transaction function resumes the reporting of transaction data within the script that was suspended by lr_stop_transaction. After a call to lr_stop_transaction, statistics returned by the "get" Transaction Functions reflect only the data up to that call, until this function is called.

Data collection, however, is not interrupted. After the call to lr_resume_transaction, the "get" functions return all data since the start of the transaction. Furthermore, the final results when the test is analyzed will reflect the total values, including the periods in between the transaction stop and resume.

If lr_resume_transaction is not called, the "get" functions and the final results reflect only the duration from the transaction start to the lr_stop_transaction call. Thus, lr_stop_transaction and lr_resume_transaction can be used conditionally to collect information either about an entire transaction, or only the beginning. To accomplish this, call lr_resume_transaction only if your condition is met.

Note: When data is collected this way, the data in analysis will reflect both the tests where the condition for lr_resume_transaction is met, and the tests where it is not.

If the section you may wish to exclude ends before the end of the transaction, this technique does not apply. If you need to differentiate between occurrences where the lr_resume_transaction condition is met and those where it is not in the analysis data, this technique does not apply.

For other ways of recording durations conditionally, see lr_start_sub_transaction and lr_set_transaction.

Return Values

No value is returned.
