ORA-00060 deadlock detected while waiting for resource

What causes an ORA-00060 error?

Your session and another session are waiting for a resource locked by the other. This condition is known as a deadlock. To resolve the deadlock, one or more statements were rolled back for the other session to continue work.

How Xynomix can help

Either:

Enter a ROLLBACK statement and re-execute all statements since the last commit or
Wait until the lock is released, possibly a few minutes, and then re-execute the rolled back statements.
