Our 101 Presentation:
Read Committed Snapshot Isolation meets Replication
Greg Miller, Compassion International
Read Committed Snapshot Isolation (RCSI) was introduced in SQL Server 2005 to reduce blocking and deadlocking issues. Greg will show how RCSI does that using TEMPDB and will demo how he resolved a growth issue with that database when SQL replication didn’t play nicely with RCSI.
