Function lr.start_transaction(  transaction_name  )
Example: Transaction Duration, set_transaction, and waste timeTransaction Functions


transaction_nameThe 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: For information on allowed characters and maximum length for transaction names, see Transaction guidelines in the Virtual User Generator Help Center (select the relevant version).

Return Values

On success, returns 0. Returns -1 if the transaction name is illegal.
