@@LOCK_TIMEOUT  

integer

SET LOCK_TIMEOUT allows an application to set the maximum time that a statement waits on a blocked resource. When a statement has waited longer than the LOCK_TIMEOUT setting, the blocked statement is automatically canceled, and an error message is returned to the application.

@@LOCK_TIMEOUT returns a value of -1 if SET LOCK_TIMEOUT has not yet been run in the current session.

This example shows the result set when a LOCK_TIMEOUT value is not set.

SELECT @@LOCK_TIMEOUT AS [Lock Timeout];  
GO  

Here is the result set:

Lock Timeout  
------------  
-1  

This example sets LOCK_TIMEOUT to 1800 milliseconds and then calls @@LOCK_TIMEOUT.

SET LOCK_TIMEOUT 1800;  
SELECT @@LOCK_TIMEOUT AS [Lock Timeout];  
GO  

Here is the result set:

Lock Timeout  
------------  
1800
