Identify the cause of SQL Server blocking

By Basit Aalishan Masood-Al-Farooq, 2013/04/24

In my previous article (Different techniques to identify blocking in SQL Server) on MSSQLTips.com, I discussed about locks and blocks, and presented you with an overview on how to troubleshoot and resolve blocks using dynamic management views and Activity Monitor. After I wrote this article, I received several emails from readers asking how they can use the information returned by these dynamic management views (DMVs) to identify SPIDs and other useful information about the processes that are actually causing blocking on a SQL Server instance.

Check out my latest article (Identify the cause of SQL Server blocking) on MSSQLTips.com, in which I shared the query that will help you to quickly identify SPIDs and other useful information about the processes that are causing blocking on SQL Server instance.
