Increase or Disable Blocked Process Threshold

Topic Status: Some information in this topic is preview and subject to change in future releases. Preview information describes new features or changes to existing features in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2).

This rules checks that the blocked process threshold option is set to 0 (disabled) or set to a value higher than or equal to 5 (seconds). Setting the blocked process threshold option to a value from 1 to 4 can cause the deadlock monitor to run constantly. Values 1 to 4 should only be used for troubleshooting, and never long term or in a production environment without the assistance of Microsoft Customer Service and Support.

To resolve this problem, set the blocked process threshold option to a value of 5 (seconds) or higher, or disable blocked process threshold by setting the value to 0. To set the blocked process threshold to a value of 5 seconds, execute the following statement:

sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1 ;
sp_configure 'blocked process threshold', 5 ;
