SQL Pizza (2/6/2013)
The developers use NOLOCK AND ROWLOCK.
There's a good chance that's a contributing factor (the rowlock usage)
Why snapshot isolation allowed and still using nolock hints? All the downsides of snapshot isolation, all the downsides of read uncommitted and none of the benefits of either.
Maybe worth having a 'chat' with the devs and get them to stop making a mess.
