I have a C# application that inserts one row at a time into a SQL table. There is a timeout property that can be set on the connection. The default is 30 seconds. I have noticed in SSMS Activity monitor when my routine runs that processes lock on the database. Should I set the timeout property to be shorter? What would be an appropriate wait time? Each import has about 2,000 records to insert.
