Locks Event Category

Use the event classes in the Locks event category to monitor locking activity in an instance of the Microsoft SQL Server Database Engine. These event classes can help you investigate locking problems caused by multiple users reading and modifying data concurrently.

Because the Database Engine often processes many locks, capturing the Locks event classes during a trace can incur significant overhead and result in large trace files or tables.
