Synchronous vs Asynchronous Mirror : Transaction Delay

by Snehashish Ghosh

If there is a need to do a comparative study between performance of the database server in Synchronous Mirror and  while in Asynchronous Mirror, the SQLServer counter Transaction delay should be captured and analysed.

Transaction Delay: Delay (in milliseconds) in waiting for commit acknowledgement from the mirror. This counters reports the total delay for all the transactions in process at that time. 

When running in Asynchronous mirroring the Transaction Delay counter will always be 0.

 By comparing the counter value between a defined period,say 2 consecutive days, we could see how much of database time is spent in milliseconds to get commit acknowledge from Mirror Server.
