Marks the beginning of a transaction.
int lr_start_transaction( char *transaction_name );
|Example: lr_start_transaction||Transaction Functions|
int lr.start_transaction( String transaction_name );
|Example: lr.start_transaction||Transaction Functions||Java Syntax|
|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.
This function returns 0 if it succeeds. It returns -1 if the transaction name is illegal.
Parameterization is not applicable to this function.
