Dead Lock detection

On Oracle 8i and 9i
On UNIX

from your experience, how long does it take Oracle to detect dead locks in the db?

Thanks

Dead locks should be picked up immediately, here's an example.  You will require two SQL*Plus sessions...

-- Create test data...
CREATE TABLE t1 (id NUMBER);
CREATE TABLE t2 (id NUMBER);
INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(1);
INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(2);
INSERT INTO t2 VALUES(1);
INSERT INTO t2 VALUES(2);
COMMIT;

-- Now, in session one, run...
DELETE FROM t1 WHERE id = 1;

-- Now, in session two, run...
DELETE FROM t2 WHERE id = 1;
DELETE FROM t1 WHERE id = 1;

Now, in session one, run...
DELETE FROM t2 WHERE id = 1;

Session two will now have its last statement cancelled (the transaction is not rolled back): ORA-00060: deadlock detected while waiting for resource

DEADLOCK is a rare, serious error considered by Oracle.

so it's logged in the alert.log file.
