A SQL deadlock arises when two or more tasks block one another by both having a lock on a resource that the other tasks are attempting to lock. There are a few different resources that can lead to a deadlock, such as locks and memory.
Blocking is inevitable in any relational database platform that uses lock-based concurrency. However, it doesn't have to be difficult to track down and resolve. With SentryOne's block analysis, capture all SQL blocking details based on the configured blocking duration thresholds. You can view blocking chains either in real-time or historically.
SentryOne offers a clear view of SQL Server performance issues to simplify database tuning.
