Deadlock is one of the most serious bottlenecks in multitasking concurrently running systems and it has become further complicated in distributed environment. Deadlock detection and their resolution is quite difficult in distributed systems as it involve data located at different sites. The deadlock problem is intrinsic to a distributed database systems which employs locking process in its concurrency control system. In literature various techniques have been discussed and used to prevent, detect and resolve the deadlocks. In this paper, the authors have analyzed some deadlock detection and resolution techniques used.
