Open Transaction Alarm to Log to the Event log

By Edward Pochinski,

Example is a sharepoint crawl that should complete in 20 min but seems to hang sometimes and then interfer with other operations. The Share Point Admin can stop or pause a crawl if it is causing any issues on the system. The script will log to the event logs using xp_logevent and a 3rd party tool can then geneate a ticket. You can modify the block of code to a send a page or an email using the Database mail. This can run as a T-SQL job step with in a SQL Agent Job and run every hour. You can also modify the time to alarm on the open transaction. Hope you find this usefull. We used this as a counter measure from an incident.
