Introduction to SQL Server Locking and Blocking
What is locking? What is blocking? Why should you care? You want to update a million rows on production, you need to know what type of locks will happen so you can plan accordingly!
You are tuning a query and the normal duration is 1 second but recently it's been taking over a minute. Is your process being blocked?
Let's face it blocking is very common and as a good DBA you need to recognize when blocking is an issue and how to deal with it. This presentation will cover most of the gory details and includes several fun demos. You will learn how to check and monitor locking and blocking and how to deal with common issues.
