I am a newbie and I have been assigned the task to learn LR. Problem is - i will like to find the source of a database deadlock. Is LR the right tool to use and if so, does capturing response time help me determine this? If not, may someone help point me to the right track. Thanks
You would be better served using the resident monitoring tools within your database (which is what, by the way?). Capturing response time won't tell you what's causing the deadlock or even where it is.
LR could be used to help you re-create the deadlock problem if it is based on predictable high-load. But, if you haven't identified what business process / user activity is causing the deadlock, you wouldn't know where to start scripting.
