I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No, there's no history of locks.
The only way I can see doing that is to create your own solution by running a 24h audit system and store that information in a database so you can analyze it after.

So what does that mean to fire a trigger whenever a lock occurs and store that info in a separate database?
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
No. There are no triggers for locks.
Only thing that can trace triggers are SQL Server Extend Events. You'll need to create your solution using the Locks Event Category.
