DBCC

Kevin Hill goes into detail on what DBCC OPENTRAN does:

I have verified that new records I inserted have been read by the log reader, AND distributed to the subscriber(s).  This means that while you are seeing

Oldest distributed LSN : (37:157:3)

There is not an error…just info.

If you have non-distributed LSNs, there is something to troubleshoot in the replication process which is way outside the scope of this post.  A non-distributed replicated transaction/LSN CAN cause some huge Log file growth, and need to be investigated.  If this happens frequently, use the TABLERESULTS option to log to a regular table and alert on it.

Good information here.
