What (if any) data dictionary views on SQL Server 2005 allow one to monitor log space usage on active queries by Process ID?

I'm not aware of features in data dictionary. There are 3rd party tools which will read the transaction log real-time. Years ago I used a 3rd party tool, Log Explorer, to determine processes consuming log space. Looks like ApexLog does the same thing, but I haven't tried it.
