will sql error logs will not capture any deadlocks (without trace running)- is this right? so, how can we know if any deadlocks occurred yesterday when the systems were slow.. the trace were not running yesterday.. does that mean we can never know if a deadlocked happened yesterday?

is running the trace the only way to find the deadlocks and its details?

Hi,

I have seen this link here where a user has created a sp and has a SQL Agent job that poles the SQL log every 5 mins.

A bit fiddly to set up, but quite clever I think.
Could be of some use to you perhaps.
