Deadlock Victim

Rerun the transaction. Another process
claims the same resources. You have been chosen
as the deadlock victim.

It’s nothing personal. The optimized queuing algorithm
says you are the lowest priority. Resources are insufficient.
You have been chosen as the victim.

Deadlock. Rerun the transaction.
Blame system resources,
not the algorithm. Blame the pie, not the slicer.
Denied insurance? A loan? Foreclosed ahead of schedule?
No appeal. Resubmit your application.
Still the deadlock victim.

Available! High-Voltage Lines, Knocking from Inside
