What are you trying to measure?  Transaction rate is a generic enough term that you need to define what type of transaction you are trying to measure.  For example, do you want to monitor CPU thread transaction?  Do you want to monitor Page File transactions?

Thanks. Just in terms of how many 'transactions' - SQL statements pass through the engine in one second.

What you want to look disk read/write cache, pagefile usage, and SQL buffer cache.

Use SQL Server Performance Monitor Counters:
SQLServer: SQL Statistics: Batch Requests/Sec
"This counter measures the number of batch requests that SQL Server receives per second, and generally follows in step to how busy your server's CPUs are. Generally speaking, over 1000 batch requests per second indicates a very busy SQL Server, and could mean that if you are not already experiencing a CPU bottleneck, that you may very well soon. Of course, this is a relative number, and the bigger your hardware, the more batch requests per second SQL Server can handle."
