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

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.

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

Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks")

'Display the number of open transaction on the database.
