SQL Server Latch Classes Library

(Companion SQL Server Wait Types Library)

This site lists all latch classes in SQL Server 2005 onward and gives detailed information about where they occur inside SQL Server. I created this site to be a comprehensive resource for the SQL Server community as this information is not available anywhere else. I hope it helps you with troubleshooting and understanding SQL Server in more depth.

Usage: you may link to/use this information any way you want, except you may not include this information in a commercial product/website, or republish information from this library in any form without *first* getting permission from me.

For info on how to help gathering data for this site, and to submit general feedback (or even just to let me know that you found it useful and/or tell me how you used it), please send me email.

Thanks!

Paul
