  1. Short-term solution: reboot Report Server
  2. Medium-term solution: Set a scheduled task on the Report Server to execute the script at the bottom of this article
    • Program to run: powershell.exe
    • Argument: -ExecutionPolicy Bypass c:\scripts\clearStuckQueue.ps1
    • Trigger: upon task creation, repeat every 30 minutes, duration indefinitely
  3. Long-term solution:
    • If the asyncoperationbase table contains 50,000+ records, it should be truncated. An oversized asyncoperation table is a common source of performance issues and database deadlocks.
    • Set a SQL trace for frequently occurring deadlocks. If detected, trigger a cleanup & tuning of database.
    • Set stored procedures to reduce the number of round trips between your application and SQL.
    • Use the lowest possible isolation level for the user connection running the transaction.
    • Ensure that the system I/O doesn’t become a bottleneck to SQL operations
    • Add more RAM to SQL server if necessary
