I work whith special programs requiring some kind of real time performance. They are the source for data inserted into databases. The inserts are no problem. Quite fast and small transactions. On the other hand the programs are also the source of event-trigers that cause some heavier work in the database. The execution is today usually done with SP when scheduled jobs can't be used. Is there a way where I can issue a command (with paramteres) and get a transaction of some kind done on the SQL-server without waiting for the transaction to complete? To me it is more important to get on with other tasks than knowing the result of the command. That could be checked later in a custom transaction log.
