In the production server we are noticing blocks & dead-locks. I have used trace flag 1204 to capture info for deadlock which hapens very rarely.
I am seeing blocks every now & then. Is there any tools/system tables to query to get more info abt blocking & blocked spids. I used info from syslockinfo & sysprocess. dbcc inputbuffer gives info like 'sp_cursorunprepare;1' or 'sp_cursorfetch;1' and puts exclusive locks on bunch of tables. However no activity is seen for that spid.
Any help will be appreciated. I am using SQL Server 2000 with SP2
