All About Blocking Locks in Oracle

A  very  nice  post  has  been  written  by  Oracle  Ace Director  Arup Nanda  about the  Blocking  Locks . It  is  so simple  and  brilliantly explained . Check  the  below  link  and  enjoy  reading  about  basic  concepts behind locks . Before going to this link , read my previous post on ITL ( Interested Transaction List)  for better understading of this post .

Another  Brilliant  demo  on  Blocking  lock is  explained  by  "Natalka Roshak" .  She  has so wonderfully  explained .  Enjoy reading this link too. 

Here,  i  have  added  few  more query on  locks along  with  it's output . For  demo purpose , i  have created  a  table "blck_tab"  and  locked this  table manually  and accessing this locked table from other sessions .Let's have a look .

SQL> create table blck_tab (id number , name varchar(22));
Table created.

SQL> insert into blck_tab values(1,'abc');
1 row created.

SQL> insert into blck_tab values(2,'xyz');
1 row created.

SQL> insert into blck_tab values(3,'pqr');
1 row created.

SQL> commit;
Commit complete.

SQL> select * from blck_tab  for update ;             ----- Table Locked
        ID               NAME
----------    ----------------------
         1                   abc
         2                   xyz
         3                   pqr

Session 1 : 

SQL>conn test1/test1
SQL> update test.blck_tab set name='qwert' where id=3;
--->>  Waiter   <---- 

Session 2 : 

SQL> conn hr/hr
SQL> delete test.blck_tab where id=1;
--->>  Waiter   <---- 

Query to check locks :
(For Non-RAC)
  3  FROM   V$LOCK
  5  ORDER BY block DESC;
------     ------------       ----------
    37            YES                 NO
    34             NO                 YES
    31             NO                  YES

SQL> select l1.sid, ' IS BLOCKING ', l2.sid
  2  from gv$lock l1, gv$lock l2
  3  where l1.block >0 and l2.request > 0
  4  and l1.id1=l2.id1
  5  and l1.id2=l2.id2;
       SID    'ISBLOCKING'         SID
----------  ------------------      --------
        37      IS BLOCKING          31
        37      IS BLOCKING          34

For RAC 
SQL>select distinct s1.username || '@' || s1.machine || ' ( INST=' || s1.inst_id || ' SID=' || s1.sid || ' )  is blocking '|| s2.username || '@' || s2.machine || ' ( INST=' || s1.inst_id || ' SID=' || s2.sid || ' ) ' AS blocking_status from gv$lock l1, gv$session s1, gv$lock l2, gv$session s2 where s1.sid=l1.sid and s2.sid=l2.sid and l1.BLOCK>0 and l2.request > 0and l1.id1 = l2.id1 and l2.id2 = l2.id2 and l1.inst_id = s1.inst_id;


Expanded Lock  Query
SQL> SELECT vs.username,  vs.osuser,   vh.sid locking_sid,  vs.status status,
 vs.module module,   vs.program program_holding,   jrh.job_name,   vsw.username,
 vsw.osuser,   vw.sid waiter_sid,   vsw.program program_waiting,  jrw.job_name,
 'alter system kill session ' || ''''|| vh.sid || ',' || vs.serial# || ''';'  "Kill_Command"
FROM  v$lock vh,  v$lock vw,  v$session vs,  v$session vsw,
 dba_scheduler_running_jobs jrh,
 dba_scheduler_running_jobs jrw
WHERE     (vh.id1, vh.id2) IN (SELECT id1, id2  
 FROM v$lock
 WHERE request = 0
 SELECT id1, id2
 FROM v$lock
 WHERE lmode = 0)
 AND vh.id1 = vw.id1
 AND vh.id2 = vw.id2
 AND vh.request = 0
 AND vw.lmode = 0
 AND vh.sid = vs.sid
 AND vw.sid = vsw.sid
 AND vh.sid = jrh.session_id(+)
 AND vw.sid = jrw.session_id(+);
