an automatic way to detect and report deadlock

Dear all,

right now we have implemented the trace flag 1222 and 1224 for the deadlock detection but it seems that from time to time that SQL didn't handle deadlock in a efficive way, we want to see why!

any better way other than the SQL profiler's deadlock graphic feature, which only on when SQL profile is on and running?

we need a better report on this.

Can you confirm which version of SQL Server you have. You have put this under SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008.

If you are using SQL Server 2012, then I would recommend Extended Events.

Whilst Extended Events in SQL Server 2008, it may be a good route to go down.

There's no miracle solution that any DMBS engine will handle a deadlock better. You can have alerts but that will only says you that a deadlock happened and the engine chose a connection as victim and killed the process.

Deadlock it's a clue for bad programming or bad database design model that let's two concurrent transactions performing table actions almost at same time. Search for massive data operations and transactions without a commit or rollback on it.

one more question, from that link, what is this for:

Use Master 

SELECT

       xed.value('@timestamp', 'datetime') as Creation_Date,

       xed.query('.') AS Extend_Event

FROM

(

       SELECT CAST([target_data] AS XML) AS Target_Data

       FROM sys.dm_xe_session_targets AS xt

       INNER JOIN sys.dm_xe_sessions AS xs

       ON xs.address = xt.event_session_address

       WHERE xs.name = N'system_health'

       AND xt.target_name = N'ring_buffer'

) AS XML_Data

CROSS APPLY Target_Data.nodes('RingBufferTarget/event[@name="xml_deadlock_report"]') AS XEventData(xed)

ORDER BY Creation_Date DESC

Open in new window


create deadlock report ? in XML ?

You can add an Alert to notify you of a deadlock or run a job.  You could have that job notify you and capture data about the deadlock.  I use trace flag 1222 and some code to parse its data, but you could use extended events if you prefer.

"but you could use extended events if you prefer"

but I don't see the extend events tab, any idea on my SQL server 2008 R2 ?

Phillip BurtonDirector, Practice Manager and Computing ConsultantCommented:
Unfortunately, it's more complicated in SQL Server 2008 R2 than in SQL Server 2012.

My previous weblink gives you the information: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sqlserverfaq/archive/2013/04/27/an-in-depth-look-at-sql-server-memory-part-2.aspx

I know what you mean, but the Extended events tab in the managment tab don't show up, any idea why ?

Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
Extended Events tab isn't available in SSMS 2008R2 but there's an add-in from CodePlex if you want to install it.

OKOK>

"using extended events in SQL Server 2008 and later"
