I was just trying to understand the concept of locks, deadlocks, lock escalations. I understand that lock escalations happen when the total number of locks increases and approaches the LOCKMAX parameter value. Also deadlocks happens when two process tries waits on each others lock and faces a situation to wait indefinitely. Normally in cases of deadlocks, one of the process involved gets abended and the other resumes after some time. In this situation, I am just wondering can lock escalations happen because of deadlocks? If yes, can somebody give some examples or some references for me to read.
Any help would really be appreciated.
