Active Transactions can be viewed through PROMON:

Any transaction that is Active and has a "transaction start time" that infers that the transaction has been running for longer than 10 minutes, is considered worth further investigation.

Status: Active Transactions by user number for all tenants

The following ABL code sample lists all active transactions that are older than two minutes (120 seconds) along with their user numbers and time duration:
 
DEFINE VARIABLE iTimeInSeconds AS INTEGER NO-UNDO INITIAL 120.

FOR EACH _Trans WHERE _Trans._Trans-State EQ "Active" AND
   _Trans._Trans-Duration GT iTimeInSeconds NO-LOCK:
   DISPLAY _Trans-Num _Trans-UsrNum _Trans-Duration.
END.

The following variation on the above ABL code sample, also lists the users names:
 
DEFINE VARIABLE iTimeInSeconds AS INTEGER NO-UNDO INITIAL 120.

FOR EACH _Trans WHERE _Trans._Trans-State EQ "Active" AND
 _Trans._Trans-Duration GT iTimeInSeconds NO-LOCK:
   FIND FIRST _Connect WHERE _Connect._Connect-Usr = _Trans._Trans-UsrNum NO-LOCK NO-ERROR.
   DISPLAY _Trans-Num _Trans-UsrNum _Trans-Duration _Connect._Connect-Name.
END.
