Transaction log virtual log files

Is there a way to find information about the virtual log files/pages created in the transaction log file?

the problem i've got is my transaction log file is 7.2Gb in size but it is only using 37% of it.

when i try to truncate it it tells me all the pages are in use.

I'd like to find out the size of all the pages, because i'm guessing it is just 1 big 7.2Gb page because i did get it to shrink from 7.5Gb on Monday.

Don't tell me how to truncate the transaction log, because i know how to do that, i just want to know if i can get info on the virtual pages.

nice one cheers, it doesn't explain my predicament, but answers the question perfectly.

Typical Microsoft not to document stuff like this.
