SQL Response Agent blocking SQLAgent Job Manager

filbellfilbell Posts: 5
Hi,

SQL Server 2005 Standard SP2

SQL Response is raising a "Blocked SQL Process" alert showing the "SQLAgent Job Manager" is being blocked by "Red Gate SQL Response". The blocking is lasting over 45 seconds.

Has anyone seen this alert before ? How can I resolve this ?

Thanks,
Phil.

    Hi

    Can you please check your system to see if you have a large amount of backup history in the msdb database?

    I suspect that the queries SQL Response runs for the 'No backup exists for database' or 'Full backup overdue' or 'Log backup over due' recommendations maybe trawlling through a lot of backup history.

    If you do have a lot of backup history, are you able to trim this infomation down?

    Many Thanks
