TRANGROUP

Syntax:

TRANGROUP QPT or CHECKPOINT or NONE

Using this parameter enables you to specify a different size for the transaction groups instead of using the normal transaction groups (Checkpoint) that is specified in the DBEngine parameter file (see Checkpoint Frequency for more information).

Your entry for TRANGROUP can be one of the following:

Option

Description

QPT

This option causes Span to perform a commit at every quiet point.

CHECKPOINT

DBEngine will determine the size of transaction groups based on the CHECKPOINT option in the DBEngine parameter file. This is the default.

NONE

This option makes Span modeless and transactions ungrouped. DBEngine will send updates to Span as part of one long group and will never tell Span to abort any updates. Also, it will ignore any reorgs or purges it encounters. This feature is useful for simply reporting the records in the audit trail without regard for transaction groups or audit discontinuities.

Note: This feature is intended for reporting purposes only; it is not intended for generating data to be loaded in another database or for production processing.
