Why are you want to check on that? Locking requests is the normal behaviour in SQL Server.
You should check for deadlocks and blocking locks.
Andrei FomitchevCommented:
Watch for duration of blocking locks, For example, 10 min - yellow alert, 20 min - red alert.
Deadlocks have infinite duration - choose the victim and kill it.
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
Watch for duration of blocking locks, For example, 10 min - yellow alert, 20 min - red alert.
Which customer will wait 10 or 20 minutes for a query result? Divide those time by 10 (1m - yellow; 2m - red).

Deadlocks have infinite duration - choose the victim and kill it.
They don't have infinite duration and the MSSQL engine will choose the victim and kill it. Problem is you only know that a deadlock happened after the victim was killed by the MSSQL engine.

Are they good if reached "6703" locks/second? I thought that it should have some threshold defined, right?
