I’m starting a new series, entitle the DBA Utility Belt. I’m going to use it to document some of my more frequently-used scripts in a place where I can search for them later. Most of these are scripts that I found online over the years which satisfied my needs. Unfortunately, I don’t have information on who wrote these scripts originally, so I won’t be able to attribute them to their original developers.
My first entry is a listing of open locks. This script is particularly useful if somebody has a BEGIN TRAN statement without a ROLLBACK or COMMIT, leading to query blocking due to locked pages.
