  • In addition to Uri's post:

    If you only execute one statement (one INSERT command, or one UPDATE, ...) then it makes no difference since each modification command is transaction protected anyhow. What BEGIN TRAN etc allow you to do is to combine *several* commands in the same command (and of course also to perform ROLLBACK).

    Seen from a pure performance standpoint, grouping several modification commands in the same transaction can improve performance since it will reduce I/O (eack transaction requires at least one write to the ldf file). Buit it can also give you worse performance since locks can be held for a longer time and other users can be blocked because of thise locks.

  • also aditional to Uri's comments - begin tran ... commit tran should be always wrap very small or minimum transactions...

    Very large transactions would impact performance very hard... leads to locks, blocks everntually endup dead locks depend on application design.

  • As Tibor mentioned , there is NO need to wrap BEGIN TRA.. into single statement as such statement is atomic.....

  • If you want that batch of DML statements execute as one unit you need to use BEGIN TRAN... Menas if your logic says if one statement will fail rollback all previously used statements
