    What is the usage of Deadlock Detection-Algorithm?

     When, and how often, to invoke depends on:

     How often a deadlock is likely to occur?

     How many processes will need to be rolled back?

     If detection algorithm is invoked arbitrarily, there may be many cycles in the resource graph and so we would not be able to tell which of the many deadlocked processes, caused the deadlock.
