Strange SQL Server Deadlock Problem
Posted on 2013-05-20
When I try and rebuild indexes I am reviving a strange error.
Msg 1205, Level 13, State 51, Line 15
Transaction (Process ID 62) was deadlocked on lock resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction.
I don't see any details within SQL server error logs. I looked into locks and sessions when this error returned and there is nothing which will guide me.
SELECT L.request_session_id AS SPID,
DB_NAME(L.resource_database_id) AS DatabaseName,
O.Name AS LockedObjectName,
P.object_id AS LockedObjectId,

ST.text AS SqlStatementText,
ES.login_name AS LoginName,
ES.host_name AS HostName,

AT.name as TransactionName,
CN.auth_scheme as AuthenticationMethod
FROM sys.dm_tran_locks L
JOIN sys.partitions P ON P.hobt_id = L.resource_associated_entity_id
JOIN sys.objects O ON O.object_id = P.object_id
JOIN sys.dm_exec_sessions ES ON ES.session_id = L.request_session_id
JOIN sys.dm_tran_session_transactions TST ON ES.session_id = TST.session_id
JOIN sys.dm_tran_active_transactions AT ON TST.transaction_id = AT.transaction_id
JOIN sys.dm_exec_connections CN ON CN.session_id = ES.session_id

WHERE resource_database_id = db_id()
ORDER BY L.request_session_id
A rebuild SQL script have been scheduled on SQL 2008R2 for last many months ,I started receiving error recently and nothing has been changed. The DB have around 5K small tables. Every night this script rebuilds around 200 tables in less than 30 min.
