Different techniques to identify blocking in SQL Server

SQL Server is able to service requests from a large number of concurrent users. When SQL Server is servicing requests from many customers, there is a strong possibility that conflicts arise because different processes access the same resources at the same time. A conflict in which a process waits a release the resource is a block. Although in SQL Server a blocked process usually resolves itself when the first process releases the resource but there are times when a process holds a transaction lock and doesn’t release it.

Checkout my tip (i.e. Different techniques to identify blocking in SQL Server) in which I discussed various techniques for troubleshooting and resolving blocks in SQL Server. This tip is published on MSSQLTips.com.
