Unlocking blocking and deadlocking problems (Greg Linwood)(FULL)
Author: Greg Linwood Date Posted: 4/14/2009 10:15:15 PM
Diagnosing SQL Server blocking and deadlocking is tricky business if you're not sure how to approach diagnosis or design effective solutions to these problems.

In this session, SQL Server MVP Greg Linwood discusses how you can efficiently diagnose blocking & deadlocking problems, whether your SQL Server platform is 2000, 2005 or 2008 (each has improvements in diagnostic capabilities & tools). Greg will also discuss how to design effective solutions once you've identified the source of your blocking or deadlocking problems.

Content for this session spans introductory through to advanced topics, including SQL Server Locking internals, DMVs, SQL Trace, DBCC commands and also SQL 2008's Extended Events (XEvents) which provide deeper information on blocking than was previously available in earlier versions of SQL Server. This session is also based on real world case studies & attendees are invited to bring questions along on the night.

If you have a SQL Server system that suffers from blocking problems & you're not sure what to do next, this is a great opportunity to come along, learn & ask questions from a highly experienced SQL Server Database Administrator!
