Enable Thread Contention Monitoring

If this flag is set to Yes, then this test will additionally report the following:

  • The average time for which the transactions of a pattern were waiting, before they resumed execution;
  • The average time for which the transactions of a pattern were blocked from execution by another transaction;

If transactions of a pattern are found to be much slower than the rest or are stalling, then the aforesaid metrics will help administrators determine what could have caused the slowness - is it because the transactions were waiting for too long? or is it because they were being blocked for too long?

By default however, this test will not report the metrics described above, because the ENABLE THREAD CONTENTION MONITORING flag is set to No by default.
