Featured Presentation

Troubleshooting Deadlocks

Speaker: Rebecca Kern

Summary: Deadlocks are an issue that can cause data loss and performance issues on a database. A deadlock happens when two or more tasks permanently block each other by each task having a lock on a resource which the other tasks are trying to lock. When a deadlock is detected, SQL Server intervenes to kill one of the processes involved in the deadlock to allow the other processes to complete. The killed process may or may not exist gracefully. While deadlocking is not a new issue, the art of resolving the deadlock for a DBA in a large company can be challenging This presentation will be an introduction to troubleshooting deadlocks. It will cover capturing deadlock events, understanding the information collected, identifying the reason for the deadlock and possible resolution for two of the most common deadlocks.
