Today I tried to trace the number (and possibly the data) of rollbacks occuring on a running database. Within SQL profiler I found the TM: Rollback Tran starting and completed events and I thought those events were intended to give me the information.

However, when I execute a simple ROLLBACK TRANSACTION statement it does not get recorded. By coincidence I found out that a query executed against a linked server (such as: select * from servername.master.dbo.sysdatabases) does give me a rollback event.

I, however, still want to see the number of 'normal' ROLLBACK TRANSACTION statements executed against the server or database. I couldn't find a performance counter either that would give me this information.

Regards, Ben

I'd also like to trace the rollback transaction.
Is there any possible way for that?
I'm using SQL Server 2008 R2.

Thanks in advance...
