sp_who returns a result set with the following information.

Column Data type Description
spid smallint The system process ID.  
ecid smallint The execution context ID of a given thread associated with a specific SPID.
ECID = {0, 1, 2, 3, ...n}, where 0 always represents the main or parent thread, and {1, 2, 3, ...n} represent the sub-threads.
 
status nchar(30) The process status.
loginame nchar(128) The login name associated with the particular process.
hostname nchar(128) The host or computer name for each process.
blk char(5) The system process ID for the blocking process, if one exists. Otherwise, this column is zero.
When a transaction associated with a given spid is blocked by an orphan distributed transaction, this column will return a '-2' for the blocking orphan transaction.
 
dbname nchar(128) The database used by the process.
cmd nchar(16) The SQL Server command (Transact-SQL statement, SQL Server internal engine process, and so on) executing for the process.
