SQL Server offers two methods for applications to provide multi-user concurrency and provide data consistency: Pessimistic and Optimistic Concurrency Control. In this seminar we’ll discuss what consistency might mean to your applications, and describe the details of how each concurrency model works internally. We’ll examine the costs and trade-offs between the two models. Finally, we’ll examine the metadata and tools available for analyzing and troubleshooting problems.
  • Why is concurrency management a crucial part of database tuning?
  • How does SQL Server implement pessimistic concurrency with locking?
  • How do we get true optimistic concurrency?
