  Deadlock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Deadlock is a common problem in multiprocessing where many processes share a specific type of mutually exclusive resource known as a software, or soft, lock.
Instead deadlock detection and process restart are used by employing an algorithm that tracks resource allocation and process states, and rollsback and restarts one or more of the processes in order to remove the deadlock.
Distributed deadlocks can be detected either by constructing a global wait-for graph from local wait-for graphs at a deadlock detector or by a distributed algorithm like edge chasing.

 Starvation and Deadlock
Deadlock, the ultimate form of starvation, occurs when two or more threads are waiting on a condition that cannot be satisfied.
Deadlock most often occurs when two (or more) threads are each waiting for the other(s) to do something.
Thus, the applet often ends up in deadlock — that is, all the philosophers are frozen with their right hands in the air.

 Distributed Deadlock Detection
Deadlock can occur whenever two or more processes are competing for limited resources and the processes are allowed to acquire and hold a resource (obtain a lock) thus preventing others from using the resource while the process waits for other resources.
Two common places where deadlocks may occur are with processes in an operating system (distributed or centralized) and with transactions in a database.
This is a deadlock: process A is waiting for a resource held by process B and process B is waiting for a resource held by process A.

 Deadlock
Deadlock is unlikely to occur very often; a system can run for years without deadlock occurring.
If deadlock does occur, it may be necessary to bring the system down, or at least manually kill a number of processes, but even that is not an extreme solution in most situations.
Deadlock avoidance refers to a strategy where whenever a resource is requested, it is only granted if it cannot result in deadlock.

 Deadlock Detection
Deadlock Detection monitors the driver's use of resources which need to be locked — spin locks, mutexes, and fast mutexes.
The most common form of deadlock occurs when two or more threads wait for a resource that is owned by the other thread.
The common denominator among all deadlocks is that lock hierarchy is not respected.

Deadlock occurs when we have a set of processes [not necessarily all the processes in the system], each holding some resources, each requesting some resources, and none of them is able to obtain what it needs, i.e.
Deadlock Prevention is to use resources in such a way that we cannot get into deadlocks.
Deadlock Detection, in the case where it is available information about the full resource allocation graph, it is easy since there is deadlock if and only if there is a loop in the resource allocation graph.

 Berkeley DB Reference Guide: Deadlock detection   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
When a deadlock exists in the system, all the threads of control involved in the deadlock are, by definition, waiting on a lock.
The deadlock detector examines the state of the lock manager and identifies a deadlock, and selects one of the lock requests to reject.
Alternatively, applications can create their own deadlock utility or thread by calling the DB_ENV->lock_detect method directly, or by using the DB_ENV->set_lk_detect method to configure Berkeley DB to automatically run the deadlock detector whenever there is a conflict over a lock.

These stories are the basis for "Deadlock: The Inside Story of America's Closest Election," by the political staff of The Washington Post, published by PublicAffairs.
This series of stories is based on dozens of interviews with participants in the Florida recount, including President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman and Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris, lawyers and strategists for the presidential campaigns of Bush and former Vice President Al Gore and state and county officials.
With the election deadlocked, Gore and Bush each moved rapidly to map their political and legal strategies in Florida, resulting in the Bush team's decision to pursue federal court action.

 SQL Server technical bulletin - How to resolve a deadlock
A SQL Profiler trace also has a lock event for "deadlock" and for "deadlock chain." "Deadlock" corresponds to the -T1204 flag, and "deadlock chain" corresponds to the -T1205 flag.
Turning on the deadlock trace flags and running a SQL Profiler trace during the occurrence of a deadlock should provide you the data that you must have to troubleshoot a deadlock.
With any deadlock case, you must obtain the –T1204 startup parameter output, and the SQL Profiler trace to identify, to troubleshoot, and to resolve the deadlock.

Deadlock is the one of the other common problems in parallel programming and is often extremely difficult to detect.
Deadlock is an event where threads hold resources demanded by other threads, resulting in cross dependencies.
Deadlock is detected by creating a graph of the dependencies and testing for cyclic behavior for each new request.

 Deadlock Detection
Notice that if there is a circular wait among the processes, then it implies that a deadlock has occurred.
Given a resource allocation graph in which each resource type has exactly one instance, your job is to determine whether there is a deadlock in the system.
In case a deadlock exists, you must also show the sequence of processes and resources involved.

 Berkeley DB Reference Guide: Deadlock detection   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
The first component of the infrastructure, deadlock detection, is not so much a requirement specific to transaction-protected applications, but instead is necessary for almost all applications in which more than a single thread of control will be accessing the database at one time.
Alternatively, applications can create their own deadlock utility or thread using the underlying DB_ENV->lock_detect function, or specify that Berkeley DB run the deadlock detector internally whenever there is a conflict over a lock (see DB_ENV->set_lk_detect for more information).
Deciding how often to run the deadlock detector and which of the deadlocked transactions will be forced to abort when the deadlock is detected is a common tuning parameter for Berkeley DB applications.

deadlocks are checked for every N seconds and you "got unlucky" as the deadlock check found you both waiting for eachother -- not knowing one of you would give up a short period later, it undeadlocked you.

In, Cho, Kumaran, Richard and Wysk s approach for the deadlock detection and resolution is to classify the network layout as bounded circuits.
However, as it will become clear in the ensuing sections of this chapter, the most severe problem in designing practical solutions to the FMS deadlock, is the lack of a parsimonious representation of the states to be forbidden.
Here, the authors suggest that a deadlock detection algorithm, presented in [67] be applied to the state that results if a considered request is granted.

However, the deadlock did not involve two different locks, but a single lock and the interrupt enable flag.
Not only does the code ignore the possibility of deadlock when siezing a lock with interrupts disabled, it deliberately turns interrupts off before attempting to seize the lock, thus exacerbating the situation.

That said, test on a multi-CPU machine (on which deadlocks are more easily triggered, because more threads are really executing simultaneously).

This sequence is clearly susceptible to deadlock, but it's not obvious that the code above causes this sequence of operations.

 How can I avoiding deadlock? - dBforums
Frequently, people mix the concept of deadlock and timeout, when they are actually not the same.
A deadlock (as described by ARWinner) would theoretically NEVER be resolved except when the database manager detects the probable deadlock, and then cancels one of the processes.
An ordinary timeout due contention can occur when a process is waiting for a lock to be released by another process, but the defined wait period has been exceeded, and the process is then cancelled.

It is reported that this particular flavour of deadlock is sometimes called a "starvation deadlock", though the term "starvation" is more properly used for situations where a program can never run simply because it never gets high enough priority.
This is the more popular term in Europe, while deadlock predominates in the United States.
