sys.fn_cdc_map_lsn_to_time ( lsn_value )  

Is the LSN value to match against. lsn_value is binary(10).


This function can be used to determine the time that a change was committed based upon the __$start_lsn value returned in the row of change data.

Requires membership in the public role.

The following example uses the function sys.fn_cdc_map_lsn_to_time to determine the commit time associated with the last change processed in the specified LSN interval for the HumanResources_Employee capture instance.

USE AdventureWorks2012;  
DECLARE @max_lsn binary(10);  
SELECT @max_lsn = MAX(__$start_lsn)  
FROM cdc.fn_cdc_get_all_changes_HumanResources_Employee(@from_lsn, @to_lsn, 'all');  
SELECT sys.fn_cdc_map_lsn_to_time(@max_lsn);
