How to find what is currently running on your SQL SERVER?

Hello friends,
Sometimes you are keen to know that what is currently running on SQL SERVER. I faced a problem recently and the below query help me a lot. Actually my production database log was increasing so fast and I was not aware of that why it was increasing with this much amount? I run the below query and it provided me list of statement with their process id and source of running.
And with the help of this SQL statement I found the culprit statement which increasing the log.
So hope fully it will help you also.

SELECT [Spid] = session_Id
, ecid
, [Database] = DB_NAME(sp.dbid)
, [User] = nt_username
, [Status] = er.status
, [Wait] = wait_type
, [Individual Query] = SUBSTRING (qt.text,
er.statement_start_offset/2,
(CASE WHEN er.statement_end_offset = -1
THEN LEN(CONVERT(NVARCHAR(MAX), qt.text)) * 2
ELSE er.statement_end_offset END –
er.statement_start_offset)/2)
,[Parent Query] = qt.text
, Program = program_name
, Hostname
, nt_domain
, start_time
FROM sys.dm_exec_requests er
INNER JOIN sys.sysprocesses sp ON er.session_id = sp.spid
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(er.sql_handle)as qt
WHERE session_Id > 50 — Ignore system spids.
AND session_Id NOT IN (@@SPID) — Ignore this current statement.
ORDER BY 1, 2

Thanks a lot
Enjoy SQL SERVER.
