The record size that Explore/CICS stores performance information in is 4K, 

and some transactions require more than one performance record to store the

data in. These transactions will show TRANID with a '+' sign before/after. 

The "+" sign indicates a CONTINUATION of the Performance record.           

Additional Information:

You can run the supplied canned report :   CICS.PERFORMANCE.RECORD.ANALYSIS.STAT                                   

It will show what information is being collected, and if you add the option OPTION(RECSTAT=YES) to any report,                                                                              it will give statistics about the performance, accounting, and threshold records including average length.
