One caveat -- I imagine this is a common question, I just haven't found anything yet.
I am a dev and frequently lack rights run Sql Profiler, Activity Monitor, can's add a traceflag etc due to rights. I have no 3rd party software.
Is there a log (other than THE log) of these events I can query for historic locks? I have been sniffing through system queries and views and although some look promising I haven't found anything useful.
I found this script that gets CURRENTlock info, put it on a loop to insert to MyLockTable every 1 second, this is clumsy and resource intensive, but it does give me all the info that I need. Is there anything better out there?
