What is tab lock in SQL Server?

TABLOCK. Forces SQL Server to use a table-level lock instead of row- or page-level locks. If used with HOLDLOCK, then the lock will be held until the transaction completes. Otherwise, the lock is released as soon as the data is read. For SELECT statements, this hint forces shared table locks.

Which is better nolock or tablockx in SQL?

Nolock means you can read some locked rows (with shared locks). But you still have to wait on other locks. Tablockx means you block whole table with exclusive lock for other queries – other session cannot make locks, you cannot be blocked after you block whole table. Tablockx is mostly used for rapid inserts.

When to use shared or shared tablock in SQL?

If your isolation level is higher, for example: SERIALIZABLE, shared locks are held until the end of a transaction. Shared locks are, hmmm, shared. Meaning 2 transactions can both read data from the table at the same time if they both hold a S or IS lock on the table (via TABLOCK ).
