Alert Administrators to a blocking condition via email/SMS
Posted on 2004-04-30
Occasionally (once every couple of months) the database we use (MS SQL 2000) suffers from blocking. When a block occurs, manual intervention is often necessary to sort the problem out. The blocks cause huge problems for users of the system until they are cleared.
Does anybody know whether it is possible to create an application/stored procedure etc to check whether blocking exists and send an email and SMS to an administrator?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
