I have a vb application who call one StoreProcedure. This SP update the db with some information, this sp take about 15min. to finish it's work and one person can call it 2-3 times in 5 minutes.They can be more then 1 person who call this sp at same time. People can stop and restart a thread of this SP.

For ex. I have 2 people connected

Spid 1 & Spid 2

Spid 1 have 2 thread (kpid 11 & Kpid 12)
Spid 2 have 3 thread (kpid 21, 22, 23)

If Spid 1 want to kill only Kpid 12, how can i do that. For now, i'm only able to kill Spid 1 but this will kill all Kpid for this user.

It is not possible to kill a specific kpid using 'kill' command (or any command for that matter). And it is not advisable to do so. SQL server will divide long running transactions into multiple threads and process them parallelly and joins all threads at the end of the transaction.

If you kill one of these threads, it leaves your transaction in an inconsistent state.
