Database.GetTransactionCount Method

Gets the number of open transactions on the database.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Function GetTransactionCount As Integer
'Usage
Dim instance As Database 
Dim returnValue As Integer 

returnValue = instance.GetTransactionCount()
public int GetTransactionCount()
public:
int GetTransactionCount()
member GetTransactionCount : unit -> int
public function GetTransactionCount() : int

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
An Int32 value that specifies the number of open transactions on the database.

Remarks

This method is useful when you change the snapshot isolation setting of the database to True, because the call can take a long time when there are long-running open transactions.

Examples

VB

'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server

'Reference the AdventureWorks2012 database.
Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks2012")

'Display the number of open transaction on the database.
Console.WriteLine(db.GetTransactionCount.ToString)

PowerShell

$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")
$db = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Database
$db = $srv.Databases.Item("AdventureWorks2012")

Write-Host $db.GetTransactionCount()
