Deadlocks due to different Access Paths

leave a comment »

A common deadlock pattern involving a single table is when the table is accessed using different access paths by means of different indexes. This post in Bart Duncan’s series explains this with a proper example.

Jonathan (b|t) offers a visual representation of the concept here.

Remus Rusanu(b|t) also offers an example of the problem here.
