sys.dm_tran_locks DMV (Dynamic Management View) is described by BOL as follows: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190345.aspx
Returns information about currently active lock manager resources. Each row represents a currently active request to the lock manager for a lock that has been granted or is waiting to be granted.
The columns in the result set are divided into two main groups: resource and request. The resource group describes the resource on which the lock request is being made, and the request group describes the lock request.
This DMV is very useful in helping to identify locking and blocking issues on your database instances.
Query 1: Details of currently active locks:
WHEN -2 THEN ‘ORPHANED DISTRIBUTED TRANSACTION’
WHEN -3 THEN ‘DEFERRED RECOVERY TRANSACTION’
ELSE DTL.REQUEST_SESSION_ID END AS SPID,
DB_NAME(DTL.RESOURCE_DATABASE_ID) AS DATABASENAME,
SO.NAME AS LOCKEDOBJECTNAME,
DTL.RESOURCE_TYPE AS LOCKEDRESOURCE,
DTL.REQUEST_MODE AS LOCKTYPE,
ST.TEXT AS SQLSTATEMENTTEXT,
ES.LOGIN_NAME AS LOGINNAME,
ES.HOST_NAME AS HOSTNAME,
WHEN 0 THEN ‘SYSTEM TRANSACTION’
WHEN 1 THEN ‘USER TRANSACTION’ END AS USER_OR_SYSTEM_TRANSACTION,
AT.NAME AS TRANSACTIONNAME,
JOIN SYS.PARTITIONS SP ON SP.HOBT_ID = DTL.RESOURCE_ASSOCIATED_ENTITY_ID
JOIN SYS.OBJECTS SO ON SO.OBJECT_ID = SP.OBJECT_ID
JOIN SYS.DM_EXEC_SESSIONS ES ON ES.SESSION_ID = DTL.REQUEST_SESSION_ID
JOIN SYS.DM_TRAN_SESSION_TRANSACTIONS TST ON ES.SESSION_ID = TST.SESSION_ID

ORDER BY DTL.REQUEST_SESSION_ID
- Column request_session_id display the session ID owns the lock or raise request.
If value display is
-2 indicates that the request belongs to an orphaned distributed transaction.
If value display is
-3 indicates that the request belongs to a deferred recovery transaction, such as, a transaction for which a rollback has been deferred at recovery because the rollback could not be completed successfully.

TRANSACTION = The request is owned by a transaction.
CURSOR = The request is owned by a cursor.
SESSION = The request is owned by a user session.
SHARED_TRANSACTION_WORKSPACE = The request is owned by the shared part of the transaction workspace.
EXCLUSIVE_TRANSACTION_WORKSPACE = The request is owned by the exclusive part of the transaction workspace.
