Select the Session Retry on Deadlock option in the session properties if you want the Integration Service to retry writes to a target database or recovery table on a deadlock. A deadlock occurs when the Integration Service attempts to take control of the same lock for a database row.
The Integration Service may encounter a deadlock under the following conditions:
A session writes to a partitioned target.
Two sessions write simultaneously to the same target.
Multiple sessions simultaneously write to the recovery table, PM_RECOVERY.
Encountering deadlocks can slow session performance. To improve session performance, you can increase the number of target connection groups the Integration Service uses to write to the targets in a session. To use a different target connection group for each target in a session, use a different database connection name for each target instance. You can specify the same connection information for each connection name.
You can retry sessions on deadlock for targets configured for normal load. If you select this option and configure a target for bulk mode, the Integration Service does not retry target writes on a deadlock for that target. You can also configure the Integration Service to set the number of deadlock retries and the deadlock sleep time period.
To retry a session on deadlock, click the Properties tab in the session properties and then scroll down to the Performance settings.
