does the # of results from the above proc, help to determine how vulnerable the database is to resource starvation?

for example, 1000 entries vs 10,000 entries.

thanks

No ... it would only tell you how busy it is. You can have a small server with 50 locks and it's getting killed, or a large server with 1000 locks that running fine.
There are many other tools like activity monitor that can help with checking the performance.
P.S ... sp_lock is going away in future versions, so I wouldn't get to comfortable with it ... :-)

Nope, It would say the no. of locks present in your database..
And since sp_lock is going to be deprecated, its recommended to use sys.dm_tran_locks instead.
