lr.start_transaction

Marks the beginning of a transaction.

C#

void lr.start_transaction( string transaction_name );

VB.NET

Sub lr.start_transaction( ByVal transaction_name As String )  
Example: lr.start_transaction Transaction Functions

Arguments

Name Comments
transaction_name The name of the transaction.

The lr.start_transaction function marks the beginning of a transaction. To indicate a transaction to be analyzed, use the lr.start_transaction and lr.end_transaction functions. These functions are inserted immediately before and after the transaction.

Transactions can be nested, but each lr.start_transaction statement must be associated with an lr.end_transaction statement or it will be interpreted as an illegal command.

Note: Do not use the period character (.) in a transaction or sub-transaction name. The period character delimits transactions and sub-transactions. In analysis, a transaction name with a period will be interpreted as two transactions.

Return Values

No value returned.
