OBJECT_LOCK_INFO() table function which accepts library name, object name, and object type - returns list of locks on that object

When using the copy command with the dtaara it creates threads in the background which makes the copy of big amounts of records in couple of minutes. Without the dtaara the copy runs for hours. Need a fix/solution which works the same seeing dtaar...
