SQL Server 7 script for lock timeouts


SQL Server Scripts by Burleson Consulting
 


 
************************************************
-- lock_timeouts7.sql
************************************************
By default, all processes wait indefinitely for locks in SQL Server.
This behavior can be changed by using the SET LOCK_TIMEOUT command,
which limits the number of seconds that a process waits for a lock before
timing out. The question might be asked, “How one know if the timeout was
set too short?” The SQL Server keeps track of the number of lock timeouts
so it can quickly show if an invalid setting for timeouts has been received.
For SQL Server 7, this query can be used:



select
   sum(cntr_value)
from
   master.dbo.sysperfinfo
See code depot for full script
where
   counter_name = 'Lock Timeouts/sec'
and

   object_name = 'SQLServer:Locks'
