DBD: Understanding Locking in SQL Server (Victor Isakov)
Author: Victor Isakov Date Posted: 7/26/2011 10:02:50 PM
DBAs and DB Developers commonly overlook concurrency when in the "panic" of troubleshooting an urgent performance problem, as they look at CPU, disk or memory bottlenecks. DB Developers commonly override SQL Server's default locking behaviour without understanding the full implication of what they have done, or that there are better solutions. Understanding SQL Server's locking architecture and how best to change it is important to optimise concurrency performance in your database solutions.

In this session Victor Isakov [i](MCA, MCM, MCT, MVP)[/i] will cover the internals of how SQL Server locking works, how you can override the default locking behaviour in SQL Server, and some guidance / best practices around how you should optimize your locking strategy. Along the way Victor will dispell some common myths, and show why NOLOCK is a bad idea.
