Concurrency control, aka locking and blocking, is one of the central tenets of the ACID properties of transactions in a relational database. And yet, when done poorly, locking issues can bring any database application to a screeching halt. This webinar takes you through a variety of demos to teach you all of the ins and outs about locking, blocking, and transactions in SQL Server and Azure SQL.

We will cover a variety of relevant issues and FAQs, including:

  • Common concurrency problem situations
  • Transaction isolation levels
  • Blocking chains and how to find them
  • Why NOLOCK is not the solution for many problems and can even make things worse
  • DMVs and other instrumentation that tells you what is going on with locking
  • Lock escalation
  • And much more

SQL Server offers a wide variety of ways to ensure transactional concurrency and consistency. Register for this webinar to learn all of the details so that you can write better applications and administrate your databases more effectively!
