Monitoring MS.SQL 2008 Lock Process

Posted on 2009-04-20
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Dear Experts,

In MS.SQL 2000 Server, I usually can monitor Lock Process from enterprise manager (Management - Current Activity - Lock / Process ID)

Now I am using MS. SQL 2008 express edition and I cannot find any feature to monitor this from Management Studio, is it because I use Express Edition?

My Questions:
1. on what edition this feature will show up in Management Studio? is Standard Edition already has this feature?
2. How to monitor the lock process with SQL 2008 Express edition?
3. How to kill lock process in SQL 2008 Express Edition?

Kindly advise.

Thank you.

    In SQL Server 2005 and 2008, it is called as Activity Monitor.
    Just right click your Server and Select Activity Monitor.

    1. On all editions of SSMS you will be having this Activity Monitor(Not Sure about Express Edition)
    2. Check out the topic Resource waits in the below link
    3. Right Click a Process and then Kill Process. that process will be killed.

    Hope this helps
