Dear Experts,

I have a trace file for LOCKS on a database, but i need to see the data under TextData event as well to see which sql is being executed during the Lock:timeout event. is it true that if i trace for the Locks?

Basixally i need to trace if there are any locks occuring and which SQL is being executed during the locking and by which application/login.

Also, i see
"Microsft(R) Windows (R) 2000 Operating System"  and
".Net sqlClient Data Provider"
under the ApplicationName for an EventClass Lock:Timeout.
What does does this really mean? is it the OS and Client being used by whatever aapplication is running on?

Please help!

Locks are always occurring in SQL Server.  If you want to see other procedures that are running at the time...select the SP:Completed event as well...also include the ObjectName in the output field list.

right...anything executing around the time of those errors should correspond with them.  

also, for tracking deadlocks, you can use the sqldiag tool.
