Blocked Process Report Event Class

The Blocked Process Report event class indicates that a task has been blocked for more than a specified amount of time. This event class does not include system tasks or tasks that are waiting on non deadlock-detectable resources.

To configure the threshold and frequency at which reports are generated, use the sp_configure command to configure the blocked process threshold option, which can be set in seconds. By default, no blocked process reports are produced. For more information about setting the blocked process threshold option, see blocked process threshold Option.

For information about filtering the data returned by the Blocked Process Report event class, see How to: Filter Events in a Trace (SQL Server Profiler), How to: Set a Trace Filter (Transact-SQL), or sp_trace_setfilter (Transact-SQL).
