"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Please post the SQL View T-SQL and give a description of the tables involved (schemas, row counts, indexes, maybe some sample data).

Otherwise there's not enough information here to be an actionable question, which makes this very similar to 'Please fix my car using either mind reading, a Vulcan Mind Meld, or The Force.'

I would run sp_who2 'active and find the SPID Value of the rouge process.  


run kill {SPID Value}

Agree with Justin, however when you run sp_who2 active check for any blocked processes (BlkBy), if there are, it is likely this is the cause.

What's running for 2h?
The View creation (CREATE VIEW ....) or querying the View (SELECT * FROM ViewName) ?
