Two possibilities:
1. Use the utlbstat/utlestat.sql scripts (should be in $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin) with a certain amount of time in between (two hours during 'rush hours'). The resulting report.txt file will contain information about the transactions that have been during the that period (it contains a lot of other stuff, just search on the word 'transaction')
2. Even more DIY: do queries on v$sysstat several times
select on v$sysstat where name like 'transaction%'
Don't forget to note the time with each measureent and do the calculation yourself.

Hope this helps,

Hi mjkrijgsman !

 I understand what saying..but how do you measure
 " a transaction".
I don't understand what 's "a TRANSACTION"  is

I mean, it's actually one update  or
two more updates in two tables...or ..???

I'm not very clear about it.

Thanks very much !

Trasaction consists of statements which are fired against a database. It would generally consists of DML statements ( Select, Insert, Update, Delete ). These statements need to be against a single table, it could be modifying any table in the same database.

To measure a transaction, you have to first determine the amount of work done by evaluating the measures ( howto: see first comment ) of the statments which consists a transaction.

Hope this helps you.
Need more, post a comment.

The benchmark specifications could give you some idea.
