Where is deadlock in SQL Server?
Use SQL Server Profiler to identify the cause of a deadlock. A deadlock occurs when there is a cyclic dependency between two or more threads, or processes, for some set of resources within SQL Server. Using SQL Server Profiler, you can create a trace that records, replays, and displays deadlock events for analysis.
How do you trace a deadlock?
A deadlock can be detected by using the trace to reconstruct the state machine of the resource locks and to detect the cyclic dependency indicating the deadlock.
How do you kill a deadlock?
Scroll down to the SPID of the process you would like to kill. Right click on that line and select ‘Kill Process’. A popup window will open for you to confirm that you want to kill the process. Once this is done, the process will be terminated and all uncompleted transactions will begin the rollback process.
How do I know if a deadlock is enabled?
Using Trace Flag 1204

- Do not allow any user input during transactions.
- Avoid cursors.
- Keep transactions as short as possible.
How can I check if a deadlock is enabled or not in SQL Server?
You can check the status of the trace flag using the DBCC TRACESTATUS (1222, -1) command. You can see by the following results that the trace flag is enabled, and that it is enabled globally. You can turn off the trace flag any time by simply issuing the DBCC TRACEOFF (1222,-1) command.
How do I know if a trace flag is enabled?
Just get to the Server node on Object Explorer (SSMS) -> Right Click -> Reports -> Standard Reports -> “Server Dashboard”. Once you are here, you can expand the “Non-Default Configuration Options” and there are these Trace Flags that are enabled “Globally” on a given server.
What is the deadlock and how do you manage deadlock in DB system?

How do you know if a deadlock has occurred through query and how do you prevent a deadlock?
The first approach is to turn on the trace flag to find the deadlocks. This can be done with the following statement run in Query Analyzer. When a deadlock occurs the information like the following will be captured in the SQL Server Error Log.
