What is a deadlock?

 Posted by Sudhak on 4/1/2009 | Category: Sql Server Interview questions | Views: 12212

Deadlock is a situation when two processes, each having a lock on one piece of data, attempt to acquire a lock on the other’s piece. Each process would wait indefinitely for the other to release the lock, unless one of the user processes is terminated.
SQL Server detects deadlocks and terminates one user’s process
