Managing SQL Server Database Concurrency

via Pluralsight


This course will dig into topics such as deadlocks, isolation levels, and more when managing SQL Server Database.

Are you sometimes unsure about what type of database transaction or what isolation level makes sense for your application? Have you ever run into blocking problems or the dreaded deadlock? In this course, Managing SQL Server Database Concurrency, you will learn foundational knowledge of how SQL Server maximises the shared use of a database system while safeguarding the integrity of the data under its care and quickly delivering results to all applications that use it. First, you will learn how transactions are used and the various levels of isolation available. Next, you will discover how SQL Server uses locking to enable concurrency without affecting data integrity. Finally, you will explore how to analyze concurrency-affecting queries, including those that deadlock, and some techniques you can use to keep to avoid such issues. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of concurrency management needed to explain database behavior, debug and fix blocking and deadlocking queries, and design queries that can do their jobs efficiently while minimizing their effects on other work being done simultaneously.
