Returns information on the number of pending commands for a subscription to a transactional publication and a rough estimate of how much time it takes to process them. This stored procedure returns one row for each returned subscription. This stored procedure, which is used to monitor replication, is executed at the Distributor on the distribution database.
Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Distributor or members of the db_owner fixed database role in the distribution database can execute sp_replmonitorsubscriptionpendingcmds. Members of the publication access list for a publication that uses the distribution database can execute sp_replmonitorsubscriptionpendingcmds to return pending commands for that publication.
