I see the use of the NOLOCK hint in existing code for my stored procedures and I am not exactly sure if this is helpful or not.
This way you can set a whole batch of statements instead of modifying each query.
Before visiting the library to conduct research, all researchers must register and create an account using our online collections request system.“All she was a mad about was, ‘You don’t want to have a baby, but you’re mad about her baby.
And there was a big fall-out.” Hartwell added that his wife fled to visit a spiritualist and “started going out with friends all the time and not telling me when she was coming home or sometimes not coming home at all.” After the confrontation, Hartwell — who has a 9-year-old son, Ed his ex-wife, former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Lisa Wu — says Knight Pulliam was willing to have a baby by any means possible, through in vitro, adoption or naturally.
Even though that transaction has not been committed, since we are using the NOLOCK hint SQL Server ignores the locks and returns the data.
If the UPDATE is rolled back the data will revert back to what it looked like before, so this is considered a Dirty Read because this data may or may not exist depending on the final outcome in query window 1.
Also, we are getting a Sch-S lock versus an IS lock for the table (TAB).
So another thing to point out is that even when you just SELECT data SQL Server still creates a lock to make sure the data is consistent.
It seems like this has been a practice that was put in place and now is throughout all of the code wherever there are SELECT statements.
Can you explain the what NOLOCK does and whether this is a good practice or not?
These are the lock types and the lock modes that are used for the above two queries.
You can also set the Isolation Level for all queries instead of using the NOLOCK or READUNCOMMITTED hint.
Let's walk through some simple examples to see how this works.
