Are there any restrictions for the transaction command which are specified in limits.conf?

Our transaction period can cover five to six days covering sessions by users connected to the company's network. Are there any configurations set-up in limits.conf that we need to be aware of, when we use the transaction command?

That's nice - the limit.conf documentation refers to two parameters for the transaction command - maxopentxn and maxopenevents. maxopentxn might be applicable to us. In case transactions are being evicted from the pool, will we see references to them via the UI or/and in the log files?

sample:

| makeresults count=1000000
| streamstats count as A
| eval A=A % 2
| streamstats count as B
| transaction A

There is no display on job.

Do you have to use transaction ?

It can be stats, but we would like to understand transaction and its limits.
